My Page

My Page is a "personal workspace" that can be used to store information gathered while exploring and build your understanding.

Most of the features under My Page become active only after you login as a registered user. Once logged in you will see the following tabs in the My Page pane:

Search History - review searches

Search History opens a list of recent Searches presented in a table. The content of the table is presented in chronological order (most recent Searches at the top). The table has three columns: Date, Origin and Your search. Entries in the Origin column show the general class of search (whether it was launched using a concept or Expert, for example). The entries in the Your search column list the search words used.

At the bottom left corner under the table is a statement of the number of searches recorded in your history. If you are not logged in as a registered user, Search History will only list searches from the immediate session. User login brings up all previous searches made under your registered name.

At the center just under the table is a page browsing gadget, and to the right of that a Go To Page submission field allowing you to type in a desired page number.

To re-run a search, use the mouse-pointer to click the desired row in the Search History table. Note that the row is highlighted after clicking. Once highlighted, click the Re-run selected button (green) at the bottom right of the panel.

Bookmarks - view and manage saved concept-maps,concepts, expert names and documents

Bookmarking items of interest while exploring helps you to remember concepts and to find these later when you return to Coremine Medical.

From the Bookmarks pane you take several actions: View bookmarked items; Activate email alerts; Share item; Comment on bookmarked item; Delete Bookmark; Launch search in Explorer with bookmarked item.

View bookmarked items
Bookmarked items are listed in a table. That is, concepts, Biomedical expert names and Documents saved from Explorer Actions menus or the Focus panel Bookmark (star shaped button) will appear in the table.

Above the table is a search field as well as filter options. The search field can be used to search for a bookmarked item within the table. Filter check boxes can be used to limit which types of bookmarked items are displayed in the table: Concepts (i.e. biomedical terms); Biomedical experts; Documents (MEDLINE records).

The Bookmarks table has six columns with these headings:

Clicking any row to select and opens details of the item in the space below the below the table. If the item in the table row is a Concept, the details shown will include the concept name, category, synonyms etc. much as in the Focus panel from Explorer. In the case of a Biomedical expert you will see the name of the expert and number of articles in PubMed. For a Document the information will include the title, source and abstract of the article.

In each case, the comment field will be visible and show previous comments you have entered.

In the case of Concepts and Documents there is the option to set alert triggers such that email is sent to you when new publications become available.

Activate email alerts You can activate email alerts on an item previously bookmarked. (Note that you can also activate email alerts from Explorer Actions menus or the Focus panel Alert.)

Click anywhere on the row of the item that you wish to target for alerts. Scroll down to see the details on that item below the table. Note the red text Set alert! Clicking this text opens a dialog box that offers alert options. Save these options to begin receiving email alerts on this item. Note that the red text has been replaced by the blue Modify alert. Modify alert allows you to change alert status. Notice also that the table will now show the green text Yes in the Has alert column of the selected item.

Share item Clicking this text in the table will open a dialog box that allows you to share the selected item with a Group discussion (see Bookmarks in Group).

Comment on bookmarked item
Below the table is a field that accepts comments to be added to the selected concept.

Delete bookmark
The Delete bookmark button is found at the lower right corner of the Bookmarks page. Clicking this button deletes the selected item from the list of your bookmarks.

Launch search in Explorer with Bookmarked item
The Show network button is found at the lower right corner of the Bookmark page. Clicking this button launches a search with the selected item in your bookmarks table. If a Document was selected from the bookmarked items the button will instead appear labeled as View article with the corresponding action.


This tab shows items from your Bookmarks associated with e-mail alerts. Use the "Edit" button to change the parameters and status of alerts.


Here you can view activity on Alert items. There are two tables shown.

In the top table is a list of the items that have triggered an alert in the last round of data update to Coremine Medical. In this table you will see the date that the alert was triggered, the subject (alert item) and the type of notification (that the notification regards an alert item).

In the lower table you will see a list of articles where each row contains the PubMed Identification Number (PMID) and the title of the article. The PMID forms a hyperlink that will open the article abstract in Tools>Library>View article.


Under My Profile you see a box describing information about your Coremine Medical account. Click the "Edit" button at the bottom of the field if you wish to make changes to this information. In edit mode you will see three editable fields in the Personal information box:

Your "Nick" (nickname) is the name that appears on context notes and group registrations. The Name field is the name you chose for yourself that is only shown to you and in groups that you have joined. The Email field is the Email you chose when you registered with Coremine Medical (editing this will change your login username as well since these are identical).

The text link below these fields allows you to Change password.

The "Occupation" field contains a list of possible occupations as well as the option to enter "Other".
