Difference between AcademicLabs and PubMed

AcademicLabs vs PubMed

PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics.

Here's what our users say:
"Goodbye PubMed...after 20 years years I switched to a platform that not only allows me to find the right publications faster, it simply has everything I need in one place (incl. PubMed publications). From the most extensive author profiles to newly funded projects and ongoing research, patents, clinical trials, startups and big pharma research activities."

"This is an awesome tool. As scientists, it is important to stay on top of the information and this allows us to do that. It is easier and more user friendly to find papers than Google Scholar and PubMed. You can also find patents and clinical trials in the same database. It all comes together as a whole, which was specially interesting."
