BioMed Central bolsters radiology image collection

BioMed Central has partnered with the American Roentgen Ray 
Society to add more journals and images to GoldMiner, the ARRS 
radiology search engine.

BioMed Central, the open access publisher of peer-reviewed 
biomedical research has contributed over 170 journals, adding 
over 4,200 images to the GoldMiner collection. The collection now 
numbers over 170,000 images and over 225 journals.

"GoldMiner speeds your search for radiology images by quickly 
matching search criteria with peer-reviewed content available on 
the Web," said Charles E. Kahn, Jr., MD, a creator of GoldMiner. 
"By limiting results to images from respected, peer-reviewed 
journals, you won't spend a lot of time sifting through thousands 
of unrelated images or images from unknown sources. You can save 
more time by filtering by imaging modality, patient age and 
gender," said Dr. Kahn.

"BioMed Central is very happy to be partnering with the ARRS to 
expand their radiology image search tool with the indexing of 
thousands of openly licensed images from our journals," said 
Matthew Cockerill, publisher of BioMed Central. "We are always 
keen to encourage creative use of the open access articles which 
we publish and GoldMiner is a great example of this," he said.
