Hello!
I'd like to ask You -- is there any open database for downloading free (totally newbish) images such as "DNA structure", "protein synthesis" and so for placing them into article? NCBI used to have image search which now refuses to find these basic images. Am i doing something wrong or is there any other place for such images?

Thank You very much in advance

I really like figuresearch.askhermes.org, which has indexed over 5,000,000 full-text articles and can give relevant figures with full captions. Most licenses are CC BY (free to repurpose with attribution) and you can specify in the advanced search menu.

Tons of lovely detailed figures on DNA structure, though protein synthesis brings up more experimental figures and there's no real way to filter them out.

I just went to look for Pubmed Central's image search (introduced in 2012) and it seems to have been removed...

I wanted to add a few of the other sites I use.

NHGRI Digital Media Database: http://www.genome.gov/dmd/

NIH photos and illustrations: http://www.nih.gov/about/nihphotos.htm

NSF multimedia gallery: http://www.nsf.gov/news/mmg/

CDC--kind of an odd and often creepy collection of disease stuff: http://phil.cdc.gov/phil/home.asp

One point though: although many of these images are government made and free to reuse, not all of them are. So still check.

Often I took figures from Scitable. I found many interesting and scientifically correct figures. Of course, you have to report the source of the figure, because I guess that the Natur pubblishing group have a copyright on them.
