Recent improvements to Pubget

If you've never heard of it before, check out my previous coverage on Pubget. It's like PubMed, but you get the PDFs right away.  Pubget has recently implemented a number of improvements.

1. Citation matching.  Pubget's citation matcher seems to work better than Pubmed most of the time.  Try going to Pubget and pasting any of these random citations into the search bar:

J Biol Chem 277: 30738-30745
Nucleic Acids Res 2004;32:4812-20.
Evol. Biol. 7, 214 (2007).


2. The PaperPlane bookmarklet.  Go here and drag the link to your bookmark toolbar.  Now, if you're searching from pubmed, click the bookmarklet for one-click access to the PDF.

3. If you have a long list of PMIDs, separate them with commas and you can paste them directly into the search bar.
