Vivisimo Inc., a provider of meta-search and clustering software for organizing search results, has announced the release of ClusterMed, a research tool that is intended to allow biomedical and life sciences researchers to search the MedLine database more productively and efficiently. ClusterMed is designed to organize the list of results returned by PubMed into hierarchical folders allowing researchers to hone in on relevant results quickly. In addition, similar articles are grouped together, rather than scattered throughout the results. Results can be organized by author or source allowing researchers to customize their queries based on their research needs. This feature can also profile the research specialties of an author or institution. Results can be clustered by date of publication or MeSH headings. A free demonstration of the product is available online.
