PubMed Labs

Welcome to PubMed Labs!

PubMed Labs is all about you. It’s a new NCBI initiative for creating innovative and relevant products by involving you, our user community, from the beginning.

PubMed Labs is about experimentation. It’s a place where you’ll find early versions of new tools, experimental content, and proposed features, as well as an opportunity to suggest ideas to us.

PubMed Labs is about learning. It’s a place where the focus is on figuring out what works, where failure is OK because it’s a learning experience, and where any idea is welcome that can improve our services for our users.

PubMed Labs is about conversation. It’s a place where we can share future plans with you, and you can tell us how we’re doing. It’s a place where we all can come together to create resources that will benefit the broader scientific community.

Join the conversation!

We’re introducing a new category in this blog called “PubMed Labs” that will facilitate this conversation. You can follow these posts by RSS. When we have a new feature for you to try out, we’ll post here with a description of it that will contain the following:

  • The user need the feature is intended to serve
  • How you can activate it
  • What you can expect from it
  • Our plans for it

Then you can try it out and let us know how it went by commenting on the posts. Like it, hate it – we want to know! Or you can propose some additional functions or ideas.

Let us know what you think!
