What is the difference between MEDLINE and PubMed?

MEDLINE is the greater part of PubMed and is limited to a more controlled subset. For example, newly published articles are available as temporary citations in PubMed before they are indexed and included in the MEDLINE subset. This process can take several months.

More information on the difference between PubMed and MEDLINE can be found on the NLM web page.
