         800 free nephrology papers and reviews from pubmedcentral pmcentral monthly nierenzeiger Ossip Groth

The MoreMed.org webresource is designed to:

  • search Pubmed and PubMedCentral and get papers from many sources as needed
  • search Journal archives and directories for exactly the similar search term
  • get PubMed Numbers PMID from one-letter abbreviated journal titles (from the references of a given paper, or scratch from the slides.)


Search Pubmed and PubMedCentral

In the left upper quadrant of the MoreMed.org webpage, there is a line to write your phrase. Copypaste "il35" OR "interleukin-35" OR "interleukin 35" in the green top input field, then press the orange bar (Enter). example link 1. Behind the scenes, all links on the page will be filled with your search term to go into the resources. Try a click on the NCBI PubMed link in the green field below the orange enter button: The original PubMed webpage opens in a new tab, showing the results of your request.

Click on Super Medline does the same, opening my engine at kidney.de. This is basically devided into two sections, the first of which shows the free papers which are free full text[ sb] by PubMed. The latter section is not free according to PubMed, but some items with green, yellow or zerocolor circles in boxes are free as predicted by my database which checks hybrid embargo times on a per month base ! You will retrieve more free papers using my engine than from a direct PubMed search.

The concept of that page is - if not working immediately online - to print it out, check it offline and to get selected papers by PMID identifier numbers. With a barcode font displayable by Firefox (Chrome cannot, other browsers are trash), things can be entered with barcode 39 reader. Print out goes by browser control or by built-in javascript buttons. If your search is longer than 2x150 items, the next couple of 2x150 items appears when clicking next page.

The 3 search boxes are intended to run Searches in the basic format term-A AND term-B NOT term-C wheras any term can be complex boolean including specifiers (i.e. TIAB, MesH, AU). Remember about 1600 characters can be transmitted. Nothing runs perfect.

To search PMC (FullText search in about 2.5M papers), use the appropriate SuperPMC button in the green area.

From the PubMed / PMC results to your PDF

Working online on your list of results, click on the Citation of the paper you want to retrieve. The click on a citation within the resulting title list opens the common linkout box, which helps you to find a free host to download your paper. as exemplified here. Look at the left row of links: Best choice is EURO PMCentral or free publishers content. The link goes out to the EUROPEAN PubMedCentral, directly opening the pdf without delaying interpages. The US PMC throws out users after 10 or 20 downloads, so I took the one better suited to you. Other weblinks will appear, including one to gscholar to obtain author-hosted repostory-based material.

The right row shows citation, abstract and list of mesh terms which described the paper. Above, there might appear color-coded bars, yellow=open access, green=hybrid access, blue = only useful in germany (Deutsche Nationallizenz Privatnutzer). Red means restricted access. These bars are useful in case the links from the left row did not yield free material. If set, they predict openness from a time-frame based internal database. They lead you to the original publishers archives. Search by Title or toggle around. embargo restriction period.

Below them, there is a stable link to medpilot cologne, german useres can buy papers, look for signatures and all users can check whether there is a link to the journal's archive, if i did not supply one.

In case you are working offline with a printed list of results, you can enter the PMID identifier numbers into the box in the right upper quadrant of the www.MoreMed.org starting page (separated by enter or by commata), then you will click the normal-sized blue PMID button. You can type-in single numbers or a maximum of about 100 not to go too complex. Currently, it yields a single page of framed linkout boxes.

search Journal archives and directories for exactly the similar search term

The basic idea is to funnel a preformatted search term into a search engine. There is no wayback of results into my system (no aggregator like the former sciverse system), papers appear on the external resource. The search term has often to be transformed, because 80% of these engines do not accept pubmed-style booleans. To keep it manageable, the primary term set has to be of low complexicity, for each field ABC phrases separated by OR operators. Best case, it works, medium, the transformation wont yeild inacceptable specificity on smaller hosts with acceptable quantities to screen. You can try individual improvements on a per-host base on their human search interfaces. Put the A/B term of lower yield in the green box. On bad resources, only the green box A will be used. The C-box (NOT operator) is useless if you run full-text searches.

Ressources are shown if you scroll down the page - wow ! Click any link, e.g. Wiley -- 43 results appear.

Keep these restrictions:

  • the only logical operator in the input lines is OR - as shown in the example.

  • You can do a (term1) AND (term2) NOT (term3) filtered search by using the other two input lines.

Like this link - il35 and Tregs -

You can save your search terms by making a bookmark in your browser. Everything to maintain your search term is in the link, also, you can use a search link by copypasting it into your documents -as done here.


  • This is a valid search interface for PubMed/PMC with true structured booleans of limited complexicity.
  • This is a simple link list showing external Sites to look for scientific Journal Articles.
  • Often, it handles a near-valid transformation of your original search term to any of the connected external engines.

Getting PDF from one-letter journal titles via PubMed

The input menue is located in the right upper corner - above the help button.

Type in phrase pna 96 1234 (this will be transformed into proc-natl-acad-sci-u-s-a[JOUR] AND 96[VOL] AND 1234[PAGE]) and press the left blue button below (one vol page). It will appear a list of journals whose oneletter abbreviation is pna* (you need 1 or 2 letters if needed, max 3 if longer than 3). Click on the Proc Natl. - a small literature list opens. Scroll it down to see Two differently regulated nuclear factor kappaB activation pathways triggered by the cytoplasmic tail of CD40. There are no separated input boxes, the line will be parsed with spaces set between the 3 components. The (One Year Author) is what ppl write on their slides. Remember, you dont have to know the exact PubMed journal abbreviation, its in my database !

Further reading for the recurring and adapted user

New search feature applied:
*  {il_35} will expand into (il35 OR il-35 OR il 35) - expansion is not visible in 
     the inputbox, but in the outgoing search terms. { is ALT-GR-7, } is ALT-GR-0
*  PubMed searches use the [TIAB] specifier to avoid automatic search term expansion, (I dont like it.)
     In this case, write # next to the search term, e.g.
[http://sm.kidney.de/SiteSearch.php?S1=%7Bil_35%23%7D&S2=&S3=&px1=proxy.nationallizenzen.de&px2=&px3=&px4=&R=all&Y0=1500&Y1=2025 {il_35#}] code means: {} "expand x_z to xz or x-z or x z" and xz# means search xz[TIAB] !
*   OR can be substituted by |, so a search could be {il-35}|{interleukin_35} ;|is ALT-GR-< 
*  In the MAIN search line, all phrases should be OR-connected; same holds true for the AND nad NOT boxes.
*  Most external resources which do not accept boolean search terms will get only the MAIN search term,
    so I can feed sites with ORred phrases. 
    (for IL35 AND transplantation: IL35 (some papers) in MAIN, transplantation (many papers) in AND box.
*  PMC (SuperPMC, EuroPMC) run full text searches, so any qualifier is omitted.
*  Proxy codes like www.bla.com/proxy.ayz.com/?bla.bla.bla - as you like it from hub sci stuff, can be
    typed at the appropraite field. Do not change proxy1 - it is hard-wired.
*  "" for phrases are not needed, system defaults to phrases where possible.
*  PMC/PubMedCentral Stuff will be linked directly to the PDF at EuropeanPMC which has no overuse restriction.

Example showing a linkout to EuropeanPMCentral

* The common linkout box now gives sorted MESH tags of the individual article to be copypasted into a search.
   (MESH makes sense only on PubMedNCBI and Supermedline, not on other databases)


How it is impemented

The databases used are up-to-date: PubMed and PubMedCentral will be accessed by eutils like efetch applicaction program interface runnig searches by API on NCBI.NLM.NIH.GOV, the forwarded prefilled links of the arborizer function open the external websites without mirroring, filtering or aggregating results from them.

Third parties use of my php components

is good this case. You can use pre-formatted links into the sitesearch.php or into the common linkout box by simply copypasting the links form your browser into your resources. Its a nice way of citing the literature, because ppl have a higher chance to get free copies !


Needs javascript, makes http not s connections, part has google analytics, google ads, server has plesk which collects data, too. Feel happy. sci-hub .org is similar, this is mine. And it knows the sources which are ok togo. Libgen.org /Library genesis is fed on request, and, sure, you know how to turn a standard link into a ---.sci-hub.org--- link !
