BioMed Central has partnered with the American Roentgen Ray Society to add more journals and images to GoldMiner, the ARRS radiology search engine.
BioMed Central, the open access publisher of peer-reviewed biomedical research has contributed over 170 journals, adding over 4,200 images to the GoldMiner collection. The collection now numbers over 170,000 images and over 225 journals.
GoldMiner speeds your search for radiology images by quickly matching search criteria with peer-reviewed content available on the Web, said Charles E. Kahn, Jr., MD, a creator of GoldMiner. By limiting results to images from respected, peer-reviewed journals, you wont spend a lot of time sifting through thousands of unrelated images or images from unknown sources. You can save more time by filtering by imaging modality, patient age and gender, said Dr. Kahn.
"BioMed Central is very happy to be partnering with the ARRS to expand their radiology image search tool with the indexing of thousands of openly licensed images from our journals, said Matthew Cockerill, publisher of BioMed Central. We are always keen to encourage creative use of the open access articles which we publish and GoldMiner is a great example of this, he said.
