ADS Labs Streamlined Search

Welcome to ADS Labs!

Tired of cluttered user interfaces? Looking for new ways to explore the literature? You’ve come to the right place. The ADS team has been working hard on reinventing its services and interfaces to better support our community’s research needs. ADS Labs is a new interface built on the old tried-and-true ADS Abstract Databases, so all of ADS’s content is available through it.

ADS Labs currently features: a streamlined interface for abstract searches; new ranking options and support for advanced searches; filtering of results based on a variety of criteria; interactive visualizations of paper and author networks; recommendations and notifications; and impact evaluation via bibliometric summaries.
