Share Article

Scientific and biomedical authors are invited to create a free Work Portfolio™ containing their publications, inventions and patents, and clinical trials and enhance their Innovation Networks™.

Boliven Publications, a free scientific abstract and bibliographic information service for Boliven Network Members, now includes nearly 20 million PubMed citations and articles for free use by its members as well as weblinks to related free data in clinical trials, patents, and FDA drug and device data.

“For the first time, scientists, doctors, and IP professionals can quickly and easily link between patent data, PubMed citation data, and clinical trials data, speeding collaboration, open innovation – and eventually the development of life-saving medicines – in the life sciences.” said Thomas Lehrman, Founder and President of Boliven.

Unique features and capabilities of Boliven’s PubMed integration include:

1. Links to Patents, Clinical Trials, Drugs, and Medical Devices Data – Boliven’s PubMed data includes hyperlinks to referenced clinical trials as well as integrated search across patent, drug, and medical device databases.

2. Work Portfolio™ and Innovation Network™ Integration – The scientific authors included in the PubMed dataset can create a Work Portfolio™ of their publications, clinical trials, and patents and expand their Innovation Network™ on Boliven for free by joining.

3. PartnerMatch™ Integration – As members save PubMed abstracts and articles to their Work Portfolio™, Boliven will recommend other scientists and biomedical researchers who have common interests and might make good partners for new research activities.

Boliven has also taken care to include the ability to search by MeSH terms and other features found on PubMed so that the experience users have come to expect at PubMed travels with them when they search PubMed abstracts on Boliven.
