Productivity App Series: Jane (Journal/Author Name Estimator)

Are you friends with Jane?  If you don’t already know Jane, you’ll want to make friends if you’re trying to figure out where to submit your recent article or looking for relevant articles to cite in your paper.

Enter a title or abstract in the search box and click the appropriate link to find journals, authors or articles.  Clicking another link allows users to search using key words.   Jane searches Medline for the 50 articles that best match your input.  A similarity score between what you input and what is found is assigned to each article and a confidence score for the sum of each journal or author is calculated.   Results are ranked by confidence score.  Refer to the Jane website for additional details and information.
