Description

For about the same price as a cup of coffee, you get full-text access* to millions of scientific articles indexed through PubMed, all in the palm of your hand, anywhere in the world.

(*if you have access through your library or institution)

================================

PubSearchPlus

+ unlimited search results

+ full-text articles

+ EZProxy support

+ button to email search results

================================

PubSearchPlus is a fast, efficient search tool for scientists, medical professionals and students who rely on the ability to quickly access the millions of research papers indexed in PubMed. By combining a simple, efficient user interface with fast access to the PubMed database, PubSearchPlus lets you concentrate on finding the research articles you need without getting in your way.

PubSearchPlus includes EZProxy support so that (* IF YOUR INSTITUTION USES EZ-PROXY *), you can have fulltext access to any journal indexed on PubMed that your Institution / University subscribes to, even when you are away from your local network.

=========================

A NOTE ABOUT EZPROXY SETTINGS :

Typically EZProxy URLs are of the form:

https://www.lib.uwo.ca/cgi-bin/ezpauthn.cgi?url=%@

The first bit (https://www.lib.uwo.ca/cgi-bin/ezpauthn.cgi) points to the institution's login screen for EZProxy... the second bit (?url=%@) is something that PubSearchPlus requires in order to pass on the URL for the article to the institution's EZProxy system so that after login, you get taken to the fulltext page. Each institution has a different URL for EZProxy, but they should all be of the above format.

Please check with your librarian to determine the appropriate URL for your institution.

Typically when you're on your institution's local network (e.g. using your devices wifi)... you shouldn't need the EZProxy settings activated at all, you should get fulltext. Again, some institutions are different in this respect.

=========================

Thanks for your interest in PubSearchPlus

extremely useful

:
A wonderful little app well worth the $2 - gets you PubMed results really fast. You just type the same thing into the search box that you would if you were using your PC and a web browser with pubmed ... e.g. search for author j. smith and title word pregnancy, just type: smith j[au] AND pregnancy[ti] ... you get the idea. Would be nice if you could store your favourite serach results but at least you can email them . Fulltext works GREAT if you have an ezproxy account somewhere (e.g. your colelege).

0/5 stars

Misleading list of features - no full text with purchase

:
The feature list states 'access to full text articles' when in fact that is not the case. The program will link to full text articles if you already have access. What this application offers for 3.99 is the same or less than what I cam access thru the browser.
The publisher of this app should be asked to rewrite their feature list, or better yet be pulled until they the feature list is rewritten.
