Introduction Cause and effect of the digital revolution is the production of a lot and different kinds of web tools, applications and resources that permit optimization the retrieve, management and analysis of biomedical bibliography. The information revolution is a cause and effect of scientific and technological progress of the twentieth century, amount of information that is now produced on different scientific topics is huge plus: It can be electronic or printed, there is text, images and

Refer to information in the twenty-first century involves the mention of terms, methods, novel and innovative theories as knowledge society, information society, globalization, info diversity, access to information, e-science, e-research, grid, collaboratories, repositories, knowledge based on literature, text mining, semantic web, impact index, cocitation, web 2.0 and 3.0, social networking, plagiarism, and free access. Those changes have been dramatically impacted the contemporary world view, scientific practice and scientific relations, social, economic, political and cultural (Russell, 2001) . Scientific society generates and receives information, it is exposed to it as a representation of thought and knowledge in all cases creates a conscious or unconscious interest transmits individually or collectively. The scientific communities recognize the value of the information, required it as a condition to perform fundamental research. Published information on biology and medicine is not exception, the quantity, diversity and complexity of digital information are so many and so different, some electronic resources through which you can access it are not simple, which has made it necessary to be informed and update on the continuing emergence and modification of these tools, while it has become a problem to solve: continuously published magazines in a large number of items. Recover strategies and analysis of information on the specific area of interest of researchers and design programs and websites constantly to achieve this (Larson, 2010a). Electronic resources with biomedical literature can be consulted electronically Internet allows instant access to digital data collections updated with information generated by the Biomedical Engineering -From Theory to Applications 2 specialists (Faciola, 2009). The power of the new electronic technologies has increased exponential, we have designed a lot of applications that allow you to group, sort and display documents which have reduced power, cost and time required to analyze literature specialized (Hey & Trefethen, 2005) . Not only that, in less than ten years has changed the practice of science, is no longer explores the reality only through experiments and models in vivo and / or in vitro but made in silico tools and computational methods (Atkins et al., 2003) . This phenomenon has affected both the way we produce scientific knowledge that have developed new fields of knowledge practiced by specialists, such as bioinformatics, medical informatics, biological informatics, neuroinformatics, and literature-based discovery, among others. The change has been important even in the way recovered and analyzed the literature so much that you have proposed new ways to access the information to put aside the reductionist approach and adopt a system according to the progress of own biological discipline. The search, access, analysis and updating of the literature in databases has become a daily task. It is usually necessary to consult several indexes to have more complete representation of the literature on the topic of interest (Zhou et al., 2006) . But such is the quantity and diversity of papers on biomedicine, there are so many, so different and complex electronic resources (especially bibliographic databases) through which you can access that information, not just that, but change, progress and constantly updated, it is difficult to keep track of them all and identify which and how many can and should use. Abstract Yes Interface language English URL Related document Yes Web 2.0 apps RSS, bookmarks, alerts, saved search results by e-mail. Document selection criteria Is based on the magazine Coverage: Articles mainly on basic biomedical research. Quality: validity, relevance, originality and contribution to the field coverage of content. Editorial quality, objectivity, credibility and quality of its contents, peer review, ethical quality, timely correction of errors. Production Quality: Design, printing, graphics and illustrations (but not pre-requisite) Audience: health professions: researchers, practitioners, educators, administrators and students. Content type: Reports of original research, original clinical observations accompanied by analysis and discussion, analysis of philosophical, ethical, social or health professions or biomedical sciences, critical commentaries, statistical compilations, descriptions of evaluation methods or procedures, case reports with discussions. Language: At least title and abstract in English. Geographic coverage: Generally not be selected for indexing if the contents are subjects already well represented in MEDLINE or published to a local audience. Records meta-analysis* No Tools My NCBI. Save searches, results, bibliography, and has an automatic update option. My NCBI preferences. Storage, highlight search terms, abstract screen, additional data. Furthermore, filtering of search results, view recent activity and the establishment of Link Out, document delivery service. Advantages Database more important, most used, most popular in biomedical information. Very short time to upgrade. It is complemented with other resources and information bases by the NCBI. Using multiple and varied fields of search. Disadvantages Few or no options for meta-analysis. Ambiguity in the identification of authors and documents.
