Descriptions: BioMedSearch combines Medline/PubMed citations with data from other sources- dissertations, theses, practice guidelines-  with the aim of creating the most comprehensive biomedical literature search available. Free registration gives the user access to advanced account features: saved searches, alerts, saving documents to portfolios, commentary and sharing of documents with other registered users. Registration is unnecessary for searching without advanced features. This search engine also provides grouped subject clusters and sub-clusters for refinement of results, and detailed syntax instructions and record field abbreviations for use in Advanced search mode.
