bims:Biomed News

Biomed News—or “bims” for short—is an emerging service for the dissemination of new research papers as they appear in PubMed.

Bims is organized as a series of topic-specific reports. Each report is curated by a selector.

Each week we make new PubMed papers available to selectors. Each selector decides what papers go into the report. That takes about ten minutes.

We continue to recruit selectors to open reports. When you become a selector, you will quickly realize that our machine-learning based relevance order is more flexible and more precise than PubMed searches.

The report issue data is open information. We want to disseminate reports via email. We are looking for a sponsor for a server to do that. It would cost about 50 US dollars a month.

Bims is directed by Gavin McStay. It was founded by Thomas Krichel.

We provide some background.
