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!
