I just had a really interesting conversation (with a long-term user), where the deficiencies of our Advanced Search were highlighted! In a way it was not a big surprise, we’ve known we’d need to improve it for some time. So, how to move it forward?
Is this the best advanced search out there? Any alternatives we should consider? Any particular problems with PubMed’s approach?

I like Ebscohost or Ovid’s interface and MESH search better

Hi, I like the Ovid’s interface most.
There are some disadvantages of the PubMed advanced search (e.g. search numbers [#2] are not updated, when a search line is deleted; user will not be notified if deletion affects other search lines; no support for MeSH search in that interface).
