That One Syllable Makes a Difference

Alex Palazzo is excited about a new science search engine, Pubget. This service aims to get researchers right to the PDFs of the paper they are interested in without all the messy clicking of PubMed. According to developers, the goal of Pubget is to free up some of the time researchers use looking for papers so they can actually do science. Users can also tag, share, and save articles. It helps, though, if you have institutional access.
