R Question

how can i retrieve information from pubmed

I have a set of pmid. I would like to know whether it is possible to get information like title, journal, issue, page number and abstract?

# Sample data
pmid<-c(8339401,8485120,8427851,3418853,3195585,2643302,7947591,8274474,8243847)

Answer

Try this:

library(RISmed)

e <- EUtilsGet(pmid)

ArticleTitle(e)
MedlineTA(e)
Volume(e)
Issue(e)
AbstractText(e)
MedlinePgn(e)
PMID(e) # same as pmid in question except character class

help(package = RISmed)
str(e)

Also google for: RISmed

For example:

> e <- EUtilsGet(pmid)
> ArticleTitle(e)
