Thanks to PubMed's new search system/formula, most pages are gobbledygook to me--at least until I figure out how their new system works.  P.S.  If you don't like how PubMed maps your keyword search term, I noticed that enclosing it in quotation marks will turn off the mapping.  For example, if you wanted cultural and not culture, search with "cultural."  I didn't make it to MLA this year.  Does anyone know where there's a detailed explanation of PubMed's new search formula?

Take care,

Subject: Problems with PubMed?

I'm having problems with PubMed.  Anyone else?

It is not letting me page through results --  It gives me a gobbledygook
error message at about the third page or so.
