Acromine: a new tool is featured on Europe PMC labs

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:

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.
