Add official link to box[edit]

The domain is PUBMED.GOV, all https://www.PubMed.gov http://PubMed.gov etc. redirects to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ The "redirected URL" is not the "official URL". See PURL.

A request to http://pubmed.gov/ returns the following:
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/
This means that next time, you should navigate to https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ and not http://pubmed.gov/ , as explained in Persistent uniform resource locator#Types.
If it were a PURL, it should give a HTTP 302 response.

PubMed may be consciously or unwittingly acting as a facilitator of predatory or unscrupulous publishing.[edit]
