ore changes are afoot for PubMed:
- If the Clipboard contains items, a "Clipboard" link now displays to the right of the search box. This is in preparation for the next major change. Now that the Advanced Search screen has assumed many of the functions used by advanced searchers, the tabs for Limits, Preview/Index, History, Clipboard, and Details will be retired in the near future.
- The Recent Activity box on the search results screen has been temporarily modified. The Open/Close feature of this box has been removed while we investigate a new way to accommodate users who experienced slowness and cannot upgrade their systems to work with the original functionality. This feature will return as soon as possible. Please note that the Recent Activity box cannot be removed. The space it is in is also used for additional features (see PubMed Discovery Objective Expands to Search Results Screen).
- The limit for adding items to My NCBI Collections from the Send to menu on the search results screen has been increased to 5,000. Users trying to add more than 5,000 will see a message stating the limit and asking whether they would like to save the first 5,000 items.
- The Related Articles and Related Reviews features have been combined on the AbstractPlus display (see Figure 1). At least one review article (preceded by the label Review) will display, if there is one in the list of related articles.
