Pub re-miner: a tool for PubMed query building and literature mining. 



In the vast amounts if 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? 



Pub re-miner is a web-based tool that allows simple text-based query building 

and information gathering(mining) of the NCBI literature search engine PubMed. 

Pub re-miner presents its results, gathered from abstracts, in frequency tables 



of journals, authors and words, which can be included/excluded in an iterative 

fashion. 



Next to building efficient queries, Pub re-miner 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)
