  3. This is a very impressive PubMed version. It should be born in mind that it only retrieves pdfs of articles freely available fulltext or from journals your institution subscribes to. But it’s very fast (and there is alreday a link to PubGet on the Wikipedia PubMed article..). The first sample searches on PubGet’s website just have a very high content of free fulltext articles (PMC, PLOS etc.). Still (again): it’s very fast.
