Assessing and understanding chemical effects requires assembling information from a wide variety of sources, including millions of articles in the biomedical literature. Literature informatics approaches can help researchers make use of this information in more effective ways. We present the PubMed Abstract Sifter, a freely available literature tool from the US Environmental Protection Agency. With the Abstract Sifter, researchers can easily retrieve and triage citations from PubMed and visualize the literature landscape for a set of chemicals. The tool is supplied with template queries that facilitate the exploration of mechanistic information by using the language of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) and Key Characteristics of Carcinogens.
