After performing a search, GoPubMed® provides the user with a plethora of statistical information related to the search. As an example, after performing a search with the query “HIV[mesh]” and clicking on the “statistics” button located below the search’s input field, the user is directed to this page. There, GoPubMed® offers a quick overview of the search, including the concept that matches the search query, a description of it, and a list of synonyms.
Under that, GoPubMed® shows a collection of graphs indicating the number of publications of the most related terms, the related publications per year, the list of the journals with the number of related papers they published, and a list of countries and cities that have contributed the most in numbers of publications related to the subject. Answering questions such as “which country’s institutions are contributing most to HIV related research” or “what are the yearly trends regarding research on HIV” is as easy and fast as a blink of an eye.
Moreover, a timeline of the related publications is available. It informs the user not only about the evolution of the related publications in the past but also predicts their number for the running year.
At all times, the provided information is more than just words: They are meaningful concepts, and clicking on them brings the GoPubMed® pop-up window. It further boosts the user’s productivity by enabling a set of actions and providing more information related to the clicked term:
At the bottom of the Statistics page, GoPubMed® provides a world map with the global distribution of related publications based on the analysis of their geolocational data.
When the search is more precise or gets refined through the integrated concepts to less than 20,000 findings, GoPubMed® offers some additional information: It not only can inform about the authors with the highest number of related publications but can also display their collaboration networks in a simple, meaningful way. Finding the experts of a scientific field was never simpler or faster.
