PubMed PICO Tool (National Library of Medicine)Insert your PICO terms into the appropriate box, run your search, and receive a set of results from PubMed. Abstracts and citations to related articles are provided.
Limitation: The "Full Text" link for each article takes you back to the PubMed homepage, where you would need to search the title of the article.
PubMed Search Tester (GitHub)"A common method for constructing a PubMed search strategy for a new hedge or systematic review is to spend time creating a validation set to test different variants. A search developer will spend time collating citations from reviews (or even hand-searching core journals in the field) in order to compile a list of "known good" citations. Armed with this, she can test different iterations of a search strategy and see which ones perform best in terms of picking up relevant citations (those from the "good" list) while rejecting everything else. This is an effective approach, but constructing the initial validation list often takes considerable time and resources.
PubMed Search Tester is designed to streamline this process."
Anne O’Tate (University of Illinois at Chicago)A free, public web-based tool to support user-driven summarization, drill-down and mining of search results from PubMed. A set of hotlinked buttons allows the user to sort and rank retrieved articles according to important words in titles and abstracts; topics; author names; affiliations; journal names; publication year; and clustered by topic. Any result can be further mined by choosing any other button, and small search results can be expanded to include related articles.
