Acromine: a new tool is featured on Europe PMC labs

There is a new prototype tool available for browsing on Europe PMC labs: Acromine. Developed and hosted by the National Centre for Textmining, University of Manchester, Acromine suggests expansions of acronyms and presents articles specific to those expansions. The new tool is presented on an interface similar to the look and feel of Europe PMC.

For example, the expansions returned for the acronym ‘AD’ are given via the link: http://www.nactem.ac.uk/acromine/#page=1&query=AD

The list of terms was generated based on the occurrences of the acronyms and their expansions in full text articles on Europe PubMed Central. American and British alternative spelling variants are also factored when expansions are suggested.

We hope that this new tool will be of benefit, and we look forward to receiving your feedback.
