    "The goal of BioMedSearch.com is to provide free access to a massive collection of authoritative documents relating to the biomedical field. Our mission is to make these important works available to the community in a way that is fast and easy, while still offering the advanced features demanded by power users such as portfolios, collaboration features, bibliographical citation export, alerts, and more.

    Our search engine contains all the data in PubMed/MedLine, including some data not normally shown in the PubMed listings, plus additional data from other sources including proprietary full-text documents, and a large database of theses and dissertations, making it the most comprehensive biomedical search engine available. All completely free!

    Besides free-form search, users can search based on Author, Journal Title, Publication Date, the Language in which the article was published (many non-English articles have English language abstracts), MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) and more.

    Whether you are doctor, scientist, or someone interested in researching a medical topic out of personal interest, BioMedSearch aggregates a vast number of authoritative documents in one place to make finding medical information easy, fast and free."
