Want to get your PubMed search results faster? Try Pubget! Pubget is a search engine that works like Google and brings PDFs on your first search. Instead of providing a results list of citations, Pubget provides the results list with immediate access to the first hit's PDF. Pubget is synched with Himmelfarb's journals collection, so it knows which PDFs are accessible and allowable for you, the user. Due to this synching, you must be on campus or logged in through the ALADIN or VPN/GWireless to access PDFs as you normally would.
You can personalize your Pubget experience by creating a free login account. The front page of Pubget features a 'Latest Issues' list that you can customize to display your favorite journals. The list is updated daily with the latest issues of those journals. One click on an issue provides the list of articles on the left with immediate access to PDFs of those articles on the right. See an article you want to read later or share with a colleague? You can email or bookmark it for later action. You can also have new issues' content automatically sent to your RSS reader such as Bloglines, Live Bookmarks, My Yahoo or Google Reader.
Scroll to the bottom of the Pubget front page and you can browse by subject. A handy feature of Pubget is the MESH Browser, which allows you to browse the latest PubMed articles in your subject through a series of clicks to focus on your MESH heading of interest. Looking for the latest research on lipids? Click on it. The 20 most recent articles on lipids are presented? Focusing on fats within those results? Click on it and the 20 most recent articles with that MESH subheading are shown. You can continue to focus your browsing to the end of each MESH subheading branch.
If you prefer to use PubMed for greater search capability, Pubget can still help you retrieve PDFs quicker through PaperPlane. Add the PaperPlane 'bookmarklet' to your browser, then search in PubMed as you normally would. See an article you'd like to read? Click the PaperPlane bookmark in your browser's favorites and the PDF is automatically loaded in a new browser window through Pubget. From there, you can print, read, save, email or bookmark as you wish.
