Pubmed Pet Peeves

Suggestions for the Pubmed developers:

1) Assign a unique author ID so that you can pull up all publications for a given individual as opposed to all individuals who happen to have the same name.

2) Ability to export references to Bibtex format. (Google Scholar does this already).

3) Include number of times cited. (Google Scholar does this also).

Thanks Frank. Hubmed has Bibtex export, but not number of times cited or unique author Id's. The FullText link does not work for many articles and often just forwards to the pubmed abstract. It is noticably slower than Google Scholar (partly due to the fact that Hubmed works by retrieving and parsing data from Pubmed instead of relying on its own internal database).
