The Specialised Information Service (SIS) Pharmacy wishes you a Merry Christmas and an excellent start to the New Year 2020!

In the past year, we continuously optimised and further developed PubPharm in terms of content and function. For example, the innovative suggestion function developed by the Institute for Information Systems (IfIS) has been extended to return related diseases / symptoms and related genes. When searching for a compound, context-related diseases / symptoms and genes are now also suggested in addition to context-related compounds. Since the beginning of 2019, information on clinical trials from the registry ClinicalTrials.gov has been integrated in PubPharm. PubPharm now also offers citation statistics and information on social media impact.

Our new LinkedIn account, as well as our PubPharm blog and Twitter account, summarize regularly the activities of SIS Pharmacy. Since December, our PubPharm blog offers contributions in English. Getting started with PubPharm is now even easier using our updated help pages and the regularly updated PubPharm quiz.

In 2020, we plan to introduce preprints from ChemRxiv, bioRxiv and engrxiv as well as other ongoing clinical trials in PubPharm. An extensive PubPharm user survey was carried out in the summer. In September we held an workshop, meeting representatives of the german pharmaceutical university locations. These activities support and encourage us in the further development of PubPharm and the services of the SIS Pharmacy. Based on this knowledge, we will develop concepts for the redesign of PubPharm functionalities, such as the advanced search and the structure search.

The pharmacy-specific research platform PubPharm supports searches in over 55 million publications. In addition to 29 million publications from the Medline (PubMed) biomedical database, articles from pharmaceutical, chemical, pharmacological and toxicological journals and journals from other related disciplines in pharmacy as well as books (e-books, dissertations), conference papers and information on clinical studies from ClinicalTrials.gov can be searched at the same time.

The structure search enables compound search based on their molecular structure, by means of a name search or by importing SMILES / InChI code. Substructure searches and similarity searches can also be carried out.
