Now Available: New Experimental PubMed Search and User Interface in PubMed Labs
From the NLM Tech Bulletin:
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) needs your input. We are experimenting with a new PubMed search algorithm, as well as a mobile-first user interface, and want to know what you think. You can try out these experimental elements at PubMed Labs, a Web site created for the testing potential new PubMed features and gathering user opinions.
Please note that PubMed Labs includes only a limited set of features at this time and not the full set of PubMed tools. The absence of a feature or tool on PubMed Labs does not mean we plan to eliminate it from PubMed; it simply means we are not testing it now!
The key elements we are testing are:
- A New Search Algorithm for Ranking (Ordering) the Best Matches To Your Query
- Mobile-first, Responsive Design User Interface
- Snippets From Article Abstracts & Highlighted Search Terms/Synonyms
