BioMedSearch.com

The following is reposted from the Scout Report for December 4, 2009:

Wading through the tremendous online resource that is the BioMed archive can be a bit tricky at times. This process just got much easier through the creation of the BioMedSearch feature. The goal of this work is “to make these important works available to the community in a way that is fast and easy, while still offering the advanced features demanded by power users such as portfolios, collaboration features, bibliographical citation export, alerts, and more.”  Their search engine contains all of the data in Pub Med/Medline, along with additional full-text documents, and a large database of theses and dissertations. Many users will find the “Clusters” section of the site most useful. Here, visitors can view “clusters” of documents grouped together thematically into topics such as clinical trials, exercises, diet and cholesterol, and medical imagining. The homepage contains a basic search engine, and visitors may also wish to use the “Search Tutorial” to gain a better understanding of how best to use the archive.

This research tool will be particularly useful for biomedical engineers.  Access BioMedSearch at http://www.biomedsearch.com/

Database of the Week: ACS Publications

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society provides the worldwide scientific community with a comprehensive collection of the most cited peer-reviewed journals in the chemical and related sciences.  In addition to 34 research journals, the society also publishes the premier weekly newsmagazine of the chemical enterprise, Chemical & Engineering News.  With the ACS Journal Archives, ACS Publications provides searchable access to over 130 years of original research in chemistry, including more than 750,000 articles dating back to the inaugural volume of the Journal of the American Chemical Society in 1879.

The peer-reviewed journals of ACS publish cutting-edge articles across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines—agricultural science, biotechnology, analytical chemistry, applied chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, chemical biology, chemical engineering, computer science, crystallography, energy and fuels, food science, environmental science, inorganic and nuclear chemistry, material science, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, pharmacology, physical chemistry, plant sciences, polymer science, and toxicology.

You can learn more about this database from its About Us page or begin searching the database at ACS Publications.

In the Eye of the Beholder

Researcher Babak A. Parviz of the University of Washington, Seattle, writes in IEEE Spectrum about how nanotechnology will soon be able to create contact lenses capable of superimposing data and information over a wearer’s vision and be able noninvasively to monitor and report on the wearer’s biological or medical state.  Read the full article at
