Provider: U.S. Government Printing Office
Descriptions: In Beta stage at this writing, FDsys is the new Government Printing Office (GPO) website, which will soon contain all the information from the old GPO site and will incorporate more up-to-date features, like the capability to search all content from a single search box. Presidential documents are posted here, often within days of their inception. This is the best location for finding Congressional bills, documents, hearings and reports, as well as the Congressional Record.

Descriptions: While PubMed searches for "keywords", our search engine lets you input an entire paragraph and returns MEDLINE abstracts that are similar to it. This is something like PubMed's "Related Articles" feature, only better because it runs on your unique set of interests. For example, input the abstract of an unpublished paper or a grant proposal into our engine, and with the touch of a button you'll be able to find every abstract in MEDLINE dealing with your topic. No more guessing whether your set of keywords has found all the right papers. No more sorting through hundreds of papers you don't care about to find the handful you were looking for--our search engine does it for you.

Descriptions: Scirus is a search engine focused on science only: "With over 370 million scientific items indexed at last count, it allows researchers to search for not only journal content but also scientists' homepages, courseware, pre-print server material, patents and institutional repository and website information." The materials linked to Scirus, aside from Elsevier's own resources, come from American Physical Society, Nature Publishing Group, BioMed Central, Sage, Royal Society Publishing, NASA and many others.

Provider: Quertle, LLC
Descriptions: Developed by two experts in bioinformatics and data analysis, Quertle offers a uniquely effective way to execute a combined search of the biomedical literature in PubMed, the RePORTER grants database, TOXLINE, and a medical/life science news outlet. This tool also searches the full text of open-access material in BioMed Central and PubMed Central, as well as that of user-submitted scientific whitepapers and research posters. Quertle uses natural-language query constructs very like sentence structure and uses relationships to return relevant results. For details on how it works, see the FAQ tab. A handy brochure on searching and video/other tutorials are found under the Resources tab. Quertle also works with various bibliographic management tools, including RefWorks. Searches can be saved, and alerts service is available (these features require the user to set up a free account.)

Descriptions: NextBio Basic is a free web application providing access to a 'curated, correlated database' of public data which also integrates literature, clinical trials and scientific news. Its semantic framework is based on gene, tissue, disease and compound ontologies. A single search for information on a gene yields results categorically arranged on a single page: an overview of the gene's functions; a list of tissues in which the gene is expressed; diseases and compounds relating to the gene; a list of the top topic-associated researchers and authors; literature, associated clinical trials, and more. Registered users of this application (registration for this basic version is free) can personalize their experience, communicate, collaborate and share data with the rest of the NextBio community.

Provider: Deep Web Technologies
Descriptions: The MEDNAR federated search engine brings the user high-quality medical information available via the Web. Results return as a relevance-ranked list, with filters that automatically cluster results into manageable and rational groupings under topic, author, publication, date range, etc. along the left side of the results page.

Provider: Biosemantics Group and Netherlands BioInformatics Centre
Descriptions: If you have recently written a paper, but are not sure to which journal you should submit it, or are looking for relevant articles to cite, or are an editor looking for reviewers for a particular paper, the Jane search can help. Enter a title and/or abstract of the paper in the search box, and click 'Find journals', 'Find authors' or 'Find Articles'. Jane will compare your document with millions of documents in Medline to find the best-matching journals, authors or articles.
