Pubget Launches Major Redesign

Pubget announces the launch of the latest version of Pubget.com, the search engine for life science PDFs. Pubget.com beta, launched in 2008 at Harvard, MIT, and Massachusetts General Hospital, was created to eliminate the roadblocks faced by ten million researchers in their daily search for life science literature.

This launch represents the most significant redesign since the site’s inception. The improvements change look, feel, and workflow. Unchanged are the site’s search, authentication and retrieval capabilities, and millions of direct paths to publisher content as supported by more than 450 libraries.

Pubget’s redesign was prompted by a recent surge in popularity. “As we saw our audience grow from a few scientists in-the-know to a broader and more diverse group, we wanted to address the needs of different user workflows,” said Dr. Ramy Arnaout, CEO and founder at Pubget. “In addition, we made search, authentication, and content access faster and easier.”

While the web brought the most important published scientific research online, it has remained locked behind a variety of content sites and paywalls. Pubget makes that research instantly accessible through connecting disparate resources together in the cloud, or “cloud sourcing,” while still respecting copyrights. As such, analysis at Pubget has shown that its service makes researchers five times more productive in finding and retrieving scientific literature.
