bims:Biomed News

Biomed News—or “bims” for short—is an emerging service for experts in biomedical topics as covered by PubMed. The experts curate topic-specific reports. In that way, they stay up-to-date with the topic. At the same time, they demonstrate their expertise.

We continue to recruit experts as selectors to open reports. When you become a selector, you will realize that our machine-learning based relevance order is more flexible, more precise and more fun than PubMed searches.

Our former selector Benjamin Winkeljann, Postdoc at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany put it this way on 2022‒05‒04:

Throughout last year, maintaining the Biomed News report on “non-viral vectors for gene delivery” was a great support in keeping up with the most recent studies in my field. I was impressed not only by the high accuracy of the preselection, but also its comprehensiveness. To further improve both quality and outreach of the report, I decided to share the responsibility for the curation with the lab I am affiliated with, i.e., the group of Olivia Merkel.

And yes, our system is free to use and the data we produce is free to reuse.

Here are some more testimonials and some background.
