PubMed Pubreminer: a tool for PubMed query building and literature
mining.

In the vast amounts of medical literature, finding information tailored
to your needs and interest is becoming more and more complex. Using the
right keywords is essential for effective searches, but which ones
should you use?

Pubreminer is a web-based tool that allows simple text-based query
building and information gathering(mining) of the NCBI literature
search engine PubMed.

Pubreminer presents its results, gathered from abstracts, in frequency
tables of journals, authors, words, mesh terms and publication year,
which can be included/excluded in an iterative fashion.

Next to building efficient queries, Pubreminer can also be helpful in
other areas:
Selecting a journal for your current work (by scanning the most often
used journals of similar research)
Finding experts in a research area (by viewing the authors associated
with your query)
Determine the research interest of an author (by viewing the keywords
associated with an author)
