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.

Dylan Ryan, group leader at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit at the University of Cambridge, on 2023‒08‒21:

This report has been essential to my research and without fail has identified preprints and publications that I would otherwise have missed during the previous week, even with my active engagement on twitter/X. It also allows me to share these updates with my scientific community, highlight what I think are important discoveries, and connect with researchers across the field and other fields of research.

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.
