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)
