“BioWizard users submit relevant, timely research articles they have found to be useful and interesting to the site. Search over 16 million peer-reviewed biomedical articles through our PubMed search page and submit your favorite research articles. When you search for articles, you'll notice a ‘promote it’ button next to every article. If you see an article you like, click ‘promote it’ and assign the article a category on the left frame of the screen. The articles you submit are then read by the rest of the community, who vote up articles they feel are deserving of recognition. All submitted papers are placed in one of three sections:
* Featured Articles: Articles that have received enough votes to be deemed of interest to everyone.
* Top Ranked: Articles that have received the most votes.
* New Submissions: Articles recently submitted by our users.
“In addition to finding the best literature in your field, you can get field-specific news, search for lab products, and read the blogs of prominent scientific minds.”

It spans general interest articles to basic research. users submit news items for review with tags and keywords. These are then ranked by the user group. This ensures that only the most relevant and influential articles will make it as a current headline story.

Dissect Medicine builds on this concept by adding extra features and functionality for the specific needs of the medical community. The site is a joint initiative of Macmillan Medical Communications and Nature Clinical Practice.”
