Pubmed Everyday!

Pubmed.gov is one of the most useful websites for researching any scientific topic. Slightly more reliable than wikipedia...

But did you know you can have all new articles on any topic emailed right to you without having to do anything. This works great for me when researching a topic like "ACL" for the rest of my life...

So here is how to subscribe to a topic:

1. Go to pubmed.gov
2. Either sign in or register (ABSOLUTELY FREE)
3. Once signed in, perform a search on any topic.
4. After the results come up go to the right of the search bar, there should be a link for "advanced search" and "save search"... click "save search"
5. Name it, pick your options and enjoy

Happy researching... and dont forget to Spring ahead, lose that hour of sleep...

How about just getting it through an RSS feed? No login required, no email clutter. Every search has it as an option on the dropdown menu.

I honestly never noticed that, although it is clearly there. I do for some reason prefer the e-mail clutter since it forces me to stay on top of it a little to keep cleaning it out and putting it into a developing powerpoint as the new articles come out. But, the RSS feed is a very viable option.
