Wikipedia:PMID

The {{PMID}} template is used to create a link from a PMID codes for life sciences and biomedical articles to PubMed.

Example:

Correct: {{PMID|4957203}}PMID 4957203
Incorrect: PMID 4957203 → PMID 4957203
Incorrect: PMID:4957203 → PMID:4957203
Incorrect: PubMed 4957203 → PubMed 4957203

Multiple PMIDsEdit

If multiple PMIDs need to be listed in a row (for example in a table), this can be accomplished using the multiple template arguments.

{{PMID|id1|id2|id3|id4|...}}

Example (with "," as default leadout):

{{PMID|4957203|4957203|4957203|4957203}}

results in:

PMID 4957203, 4957203, 4957203, 4957203

Example (with "and" as leadout):

{{PMID|4957203|4957203|4957203|4957203|leadout=and}}

results in:

PMID 4957203, 4957203, 4957203 and 4957203

In citation templatesEdit

A single PMID can also be included in templates such as the Citation Style 1 series by means of the |pmid= parameter. Integer values starting at 1 are allowed.

The linking is done internally to the template using a module or a subtemplate. The "PMID" string links to the article "PubMed", and the PMID number links to the PubMed article with that number.
