BioMed Central | Full text | SLIM: an alternative Web interface for MEDLINE/PubMed searches - a preliminary studyInterface development and design SLIM, or Slider Interface for MEDLINE/PubMed searches, is a Web-based application accessible through the Internet with a Web browser. The interface has three main components: the search form, the information box and the search results. The search form (Figure 1 ) is the constant component in all views of the application and the only component initially loaded.
This document describes the major elements (or fields) found on the MEDLINE display format for PubMed MEDLINE records. Some elements (e.g., Comment In) are not mandatory and will not appear in every record. Other elements (e.g., Author, MeSH term, Registry Number) may appear multiple times in one record. Some of the elements on this list are searchable fields in PubMed. For searching instructions, see the Search Field Tags section of PubMed Help . This document is supplementary information, to be used in conjuction with PubMed Help .
Almost a year ago (June 2008) I discussed PubMed’s Advanced Search Beta in a series entitled PubMed: Past, Present and Future . At that time I was not particularly impressed by disliked Advanced Search Beta and I still do. November last year some of its features have improved: like the addition of a Clear Button, Focused Queries , providing links to the Clinical Queries and Special Queries pages, and the author/journal search has been extended with optional fields so that it looks more like the valuable Single Citation Mapper in the blue side bar of the Basic PubMed page. And there is a link to the MeSH-database (see NLM Technical Bulletin November 2008). Although these are real improvements, the links to the Queries and to the MeSH database are inconspicuous, at the end of the page below all kind of limits.
Provides new ways to explore relationships among anatomical structures, pathophysiological processes, gene expression levels and protein-protein interactions in the context of Medline literature and experimental data Launch PubAnatomy User Guide Technical Support Existing literature exploration solutions treat anatomical structures as concepts or at most concept diagrams, missing critical spatial information about different structures such as size, location, substructure and the relationships among them. Such information is important for developing comprehensive understanding of the functional implications of structure-specific data such as brain imaging data and gene expression patterns in different brain regions. PubAnatomy is our attempt to use interactive anatomical structure graphs to address some of the issues for literature-driven exploration of neurobiological data sets.
