On Thursday, Educus announced the launch of Educus Mobile, a new mobile version of its medical journal search engine.

A well-known and established presence in the world of online medical journal research, the effort to extend this popular platform to the mobile realm is indicative of how quickly the medical industry is embracing the mobile platform.

Educus and Educus Mobile are free, but access to the advanced features requires registration (which is free) on the website.

Educus was designed to help individuals manage this vast amount of information by allowing for quick, relevant searches of PubMed journals. The website’s most important feature is that it classifies search results based on three relevancy categories: high, medium, and low. High relevancy lets users easily find what they’re looking for, without all the unnecessary results.

“Around 40,000 to 50,000 new abstracts (research articles) are published on NLM Medline (PubMed) journals every month, yet only 2,000 to 5,000 of these articles are really useful to the health care community. Until now, obtaining this highly relevant information has been time consuming and challenging,” says Dr. Chandra Pemmasani, practicing physician and Educus CEO.

The search engine automatically includes common keyword variations in every search, ensuring consistent results. Educus currently contains over 300,000 unique keywords, with new keywords added daily to continuously improve search relevancy.

“With the launch of Educus Mobile, on-the-go medical journal searches are now easier than ever,” says Pemmasani. Mobile users have complete website functionality, including access to all of the advanced features, such as setting preferences, saving search results, and creating custom search agents for automated e-mailing of journals.
