Thanks for your question. Here are several options you should
consider for finding some top-notch Pubmed researchers:
1. First and foremost, you should seriously consider using Google
Answers as your research source.
GA is a very professional, on-demand, 24/7/365 research service.
There are a number of researchers who have fielded very complex
medical questions, and who have provided sophisticated results based
on searching Pubmed and other medical sources.
Here are a few examples of some of the work I am referrring to:
Q: Looking for papers on remarriage in old age
Q: neuropathy and high blood pressure medications
Q: chemicals causing cerebellar ataxia
Q: Brain Damage similiar to Stroke on an MRI Scan
If you want, you can direct question to specific researchers, so that
you will always be working with the same select cadre of people.
On the other hand, it can be beneficial to have a broad group of tens
of researchers at your disposal. There are quite a number of
researchers at GA who are familiar with biological and medical
research, any one of whom can provide professional quality research.
Best of all, we're here, we're highly motivated, and engaging our
services couldn't be easier.
I hope you're convinced that Google Answers would be an excellent
option. But of course, there are other routes to consider as well.
2. There are several excellent online services for hiring freelance
workers for specialized tasks. One of the most well-known of these
sites is guru.com:
Guru.com is free to prospective employers (they take a cut out of
freelancer fees), and boasts of more than half a million freelancers
from a wide variety of professions, skill sets, and pay rates.
A keyword search at guru.com on the term [ pubmed ] turns up the following results:
There are a number of very interesting profiles shown here, with
researchers available at rates ranging from $14 to $75 per hour.
Payment is made via guru.com's payment service.
The skills and backgrounds of the researchers are varied as well,
ranging from a microbiology professor, to a certified "editor in life
sciences", to a specialist in library and information science, with a
Searches on a less restrictive term such as [ medical research ] will
turn up many more potential candidates.
Guru.com generally works on a project-by-project basis, but there is
certainly the opprotunity for individual project work to turn into
long-term professional relationships.
3.. A similar service is elance.com, where they have two profiles on
file with considerable expertise with pubmed:
and again, many more profiles to choose from for more general terms
such as [ medical research ].
4. For really high-end expertise, you may want to turn to
hire-an-expert sites. These usually serve to steer experts in various
fields to law firms, say, in need of an "expert witness", but can also
serve to identify experts for specific projects as you seem to have in
One such site is experts.com, and a search there for [ medical
research ] turns up a number of impressive possibilities:
5. Lastly, there are the legions of medical and pre-med students,
many of whom are in dire need of funds, and would be more than happy
to provide expert research on a long-term basis,in exchange for a
steady source of income.
I am not providing any specific links for this option, as there are so
many potential sources, it's impossible to know which school would
best meet your needs. However, if there's a particular school or area
that you would like to have more information about, just let me know,
and I'll track down the relevant information.
I hope the options listed here fully meet your needs, and again, I
really do think Google Answers should be at the top of your list of
services to consider.
If you find you'd like more information on any of these options -- or
if you would like other options to consider -- just post a Request for
Clarification to let me know, and I'm at your service.
All the best,
