PubMed Tip of the Month: PubMed Labs

PubMed Journals

PubMed Labs is the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI) innovation incubator. PubMed Labs releases early versions of tools, features and content for anyone to experiment with and comment on. One recent development is PubMed Journals, a site where you can browse and follow journals, see ahead of print articles, and view trending articles and updates, such as retractions. NCBI is considering how to push content from the site to users. The news feed in PubMed Journals links studies mentioned in the mainstream media directly to the reference article. I have not really explored the site (it was just announced on September 7th), but it may develop into a nice way to monitor journals contents and news via your My NCBI account.
