Don't blink, PubMed adds a feature

It’s not ground breaking and you probably hadn’t noticed it yet, but it looks like something that could add some more, possibly useful, info to your PubMed searches. Last week, Pubmed announced on their technical bulletin that they’ve added a column to the right of the PubMed search summary which will contain results from other resources based on your search. Think of it as kind of an Amazon’s “you might also like” feature.

You might be forgiven for missing it because unless you are searching for one of the 200 drugs they’ve added this feature for (or read their technical bulletin), like “lovastatin,” you won’t see the column and links to the other resource. This other resource is the “Clinical Q&A” for the first implementation of this feature. It will be interesting to see how that develops and grows over time.
