Science is a public good.

We're not just another search engine. PubTrawlr uses AI to analyze scientific papers, showing you the recent trends and topics.

Tips for searching well

Searching can be difficult. We use the MeSH dictionary to help direct your search. Try to use as few words as possible to describe what you are interested in. Here are some tips.

Or use what others are searching for as a starting point

What We Do and Why We Do It

Many great ideas don’t make it into practice. Staying up-to-date with current research takes time. And this can be in short supply.

PubTrawlr helps people search and understand scientific results more effectively and efficiently by providing on-demand, web-based information leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing techniques.

By getting good ideas out there, we can work to close the research-practice gap. We want doctors to use best practices. We want students and their teachers to know what the most recent developments are. And, we want people in our communities to have a simpler way to engage with scientific research.
