About Publication Manager Plug-in

The Information Retrieval plug-in is divided into two main components:

  • Publication searching in PubMed, supporting search using a combination of keywords and specific fields. The result is a set of publication that contains information about title, abstract, journal.
  • These publications are organized in queries and Publication Retrieval tries to get the PDF file for a Publication indexed by its PMID.

There is a limitation for crawling that is limited to articles with free access only, but this option can be changed depending on the organization’s rights. The is also a system for classification of publications within a query given its relevance. This plug-in was developed in collaboration with the [SING ]group at University of Vigo - Spain.
