The LabRoots Publications feature provides a place where scientists and professionals can research publications, post their own publications, and compile a customized collection of publications they find useful. The Publications main page offers a continuous feed of over 30,000,000 publications. Users can search for a specific publication or topic and narrow the search by using the “keywords” feature that contains a generated list of suggested keywords to choose from as well as the ability for users to add their own keywords to the list. Once a user locates a publication they find useful they can “bookmark” that work to access it again in the future. Users who wish to publish their own work can do so by choosing the “Add Publication” button at the top of the page. Their work will be added to their own profile as well as the main Publications page. Users may also choose to simply scroll down continually to peruse through the millions of publications. LabRoots Publications is an excellent resource for scientists and professionals to stay updated on new and relevant publications in their fields.
