LogoKeyPointsBox.pngWe have been using the syntax <ref><pmid>refno</pmid></ref>
to generate full pubmed references. This went down temporarily in December 2016 due to mandated web security updates by US government and Europe followed in Jan 2018 completing blowing our access. It might only go up again if we get around to upgrading the server
  1. The preferred house style for important references is <ref>{pubmed link|Reference details}{link to actual article if online}</ref> which if you use the syntax <ref><pmid> refno </pmid></ref> will be generated automatically for you as long as you input the pmid number (refno).
  2. Consider using <ref name="pmid: refno "><pmid> refno </pmid></ref> which allows multiple same pmid references on a page to be summarised in the reference list.
  3. At the end of the article insert {{Refsec}}
LogoWarningBox4.pngThe <pmid> generated syntax for old PubMed references may fail at some date after 31st December 2016 if PubMed removes http redirection to https. This is probably addressable by one of the administrators creating a BOT to clean up the thousands of old references. But since the whole web faces this issue hopefully http redirection will stay in place for some time.

More details are given in Use of citations.

A default syntax is <ref>[[pubmed:refno|Reference details]]</ref> However for inline links you may simply use [[Pubmed:12345678]], where '12345678' is the Pubmed ID (PMID)!

Example: Pubmed:16308242

Or to be really flash, use [[Pubmed:12345678| some text]], where 'some text' is what you'd like the link to look like.

Example: Treatment failure of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus endocarditis with linezolid

which was created with the following:

[[Pubmed:16308242|Treatment failure of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus endocarditis with linezolid]]

You can find the unique pubmed identifier for an article very quickly usually by pasting the articles title or other details into the single citation search screen on pubmed.
