Fast search of the PubMed database.

Overview

PubSearch is a fast, efficient search tool for scientists, medical professionals and students who rely on the ability to quickly access the millions of research papers indexed in PubMed. By combining a simple, efficient user interface with fast access to the PubMed database, PubSearch lets you concentrate on finding the research articles you need without getting in your way.

Features:

  • Sort results by Authors, Title, Journal or Year
  • Automatically displays an article's Abstract
  • Automatically displays a generic bibliographic entry
  • Drag-and-drop single / multiple titles to automatically paste a bibliographic entry into any document (e.g. word processor or email)
  • Double-click single or multiple titles to instantly view full-text articles in your Web browser (works with your EZ Proxy setup)

What's new in PubSearch

Version 1.1:
  • Fixed double-click launch into Web browser behavior so it uses DOI link if there is one, and if not, uses the pubmed hyperlink. Also works properly now for multiple selections.

Sorry to say that here. I would have preferred by email, but I haven't found any contact informations, neither in the application, nor on the website. Well, the application icon is part of my pack "Blend". They are released under Creative Commons 3.0 ( http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ ). This is a fair license I think, that means you are free to use it in any non-commercial project without asking me first (so that's fine), as long as you attribute the work to the author, and I don't see any credits. Thanks, Laurent Baumann

This is an excellent little application that does what it sets out to do very well. (And how refreshing to have an application that is only 208 kB in size!)

This would have had 5 stars if the documentation had been better. It does all that it claims to do very well, but the silent video tutorial is not the easiest way to give instructions. I had to keep winding it back to get points that I had missed. But for quick access to the documents that it has found, it is wonderful. Much better than doing a PubMed search.

This has potential to be a real time saver, if I can just click on a reference and have the full text open up without having to manually go through my institution's ezproxy server every time. Some instructions are needed to help the user set this up, though. I tried the obvious thing in the Preferences, deleting the link to Western Libraries and substituting what I thought was my local library's link. Anyway, clicking on a reference STILL goes to Western Libraries, so I missed a trick somewhere. A little help?

Maybe this video tutorial from the developer site will be helpful: http://www.deathraypizza.com/deathraypizza/videoTutorial.html

The video tutorial is not helpful. It is still totally unclear how to enter a proxy address in Preferences. I guess I am unclear what a proxy address looks like and where to find it. Maybe I'm expecting too much. PubMed alone is great IF the reference is publicly available. If not, then I have to the following: (1) find reference in PubMed, then if it's not publicly available, (2) switch to my library site, (3) find the journal on its list, (4) login in to the journal with my library card number, (5) go to the journal site and (6) find the reference (after [7] switching back to PubMed to remind me of the vol and pp nos.). There HAS to be a better way, and I was hoping PubSearch was it.
