These comments in a Medlib search prompted the message I composed and sent in
response to this statement:
“Until about a year ago one could search PubMed by full author name and get
reasonably useful results (e.g. Meshobob, Kukalaka [au]), but the search
algorithm was changed so that instead of searching “Meshobob, Kukalaka” it
searches “Meshobob” OR “Kukalaka”, making known author searches much more

The PubMed Informer is an online tracking tool that monitors
keyword searches for MEDLINE/PubMed.
It informs users through several channels:
Scheduled Email Alerts
SMS Alerts to mobile phones
AvantGo Channel downloads for PDAs
RSS Feeds for readers and browsers
Other features of the PubMed Informer include Search Histories and Archived
Articles for each search.
askMEDLINE Allows MEDLINE/PubMed queries in the form of simple questions. The
tool also provides links to PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome)
interface & Babel MesH - (Multilanguage search for MEDLINE/PubMed).
eTBLAST Online system that offers the easiest and most effective method of
published literature search with abstracts, rather than words and phrases as
query components. The set of utilities at eTBLAST can hierarchically list
articles with high similarity to the query paragraph as well as the journals and
authors frequently associated with such related articles
PubMed Widely used bio-literature search engine developed from NCBI. It is a
free interface for searching Medline database.It also covers other NLM
PubMed Interact It is an interactive interface for MEDLINE/PubMed and follows
the search and syntax rules of PubMed. This interactive site from NCBI presents
‘slider bars’ to enable quicker settings and re-settings of different
parameters involved in the search strategy.The tool seems to be in its beta
ReleMed ReleMed categorizes each retrieved citation into 8 different levels of
relevance, depending on the frequency of occurrence of the search terms within
the title, sentences of abstract & MeSH. Has efficient Automatic term mapping
MiSearch Adaptive PubMed Search Tool Ranks the retrieved citations based on an
estimated likelihood of a user choosing to view them. User’s citation choices
are acquired by the program during browsing.
MedKit The tool seems to be developed to overcome the following limitations of
PubMed Informer It is a tool for monitoring topics of interest from
MEDLINE/PubMed using five tracking methods: Web access, e-mail, Short Message
Service (SMS), PDA downloads and RSS feeds
Info-PubMed Info-PubMed is based on Natural Language Processing and Text Mining
Whatizit A sister application from EBI that can be useful in a wide variety of
advanced searches. This engine, which may also be accessed programmatically,
can search specific terms in molecular biology in given texts and link them to
publicly available databases.
CiteSeerX (beta version) It is a search engine for the scientific literature
and academic papers.
Novoseek It is a biomedical search engine. It indexes articles from PubMed and
open access articles from PubMed Central.
Web of Science Is a commercial search engine from Thomson Reuters, known for
its citation tracking ability.

Biomedical Literature Search Tools
A collection of biomedical literature search tools that use PubMed data.
Updated by NCBI.
A text mining tool that detects co-occuring biomedical concepts in abstracts in
MEDLINE. It is especially useful for microarray data analysis.
Like PubMed's Related Articles feature, this search engine lets the user input
an entire paragraph and returns MEDLINE abstracts that are similar to it.
FABLE - Fast Automated Biomedical Literature Extraction
FABLE mines the biomedical literature for information about human genes and
proteins. FABLE v3 allows a user to find articles mentioning a gene of interest
(Article Finder), to generate a list of genes associated with one or more
keywords (Gene Lister), or use a local mirror of the UCSC Genome Browser with a
literature track (LitTrack).
Results are divided into meaningful categories such as concepts, persons,
institutions, places, journals and dates.
