Introducing PubMed Labs

Friday, July 31st, 2015

[Shared from NCBI Insights]

Welcome to PubMed Labs!

PubMed Labs is all about you. It’s a new NCBI initiative for creating innovative and relevant products by involving you, our user community, from the beginning.

PubMed Labs is about experimentation. It’s a place where you’ll find early versions of new tools, experimental content, and proposed features, as well as an opportunity to suggest ideas to us.

PubMed Labs is about learning. It’s a place where the focus is on figuring out what works, where failure is OK because it’s a learning experience, and where any idea is welcome that can improve our services for our users.

PubMed Labs is about conversation. It’s a place where we can share future plans with you, and you can tell us how we’re doing. It’s a place where we all can come together to create resources that will benefit the broader scientific community.

Join the conversation!

We’re introducing a new category on this blog called “PubMed Labs” that will facilitate this conversation. You can follow these posts by RSS. When we have a new feature for you to try out, we’ll post here with a description of it that will contain the following:

  • The user need the feature is intended to serve
  • How you can activate it
  • What you can expect from it
  • Our plans for it

Then you can try it out and let us know how it went by commenting on the posts. Like it, hate it, we want to know! Or you can propose some additional functions or ideas.

Our first new features are SmartBLAST, an enhancement to protein BLAST, and an “also-viewed” link in PubMed. Each of these is described in accompanying blog posts:

Let us know what you think!
