We are going to automate the literature search with multiple keywords. For example, we have three candidate keywords and we want to submit them for Pubmed search in batch:
Use the previously created Pubmed robot, right-click on the second action ¡°Submit form with group1¡±. From the popup menu, select ¡°Form Inputs ¨¤ From Database ¡¡±, as in the following:
From the right panel, click on the ¡°New¡± on the right of the ¡°Data Source: ¡±. It shows:
Select the ¡°Input¡± radio button, which means the data will be drawn from a list of inputs. If you have keywords in an Access database, or in an CSV file, choose the corresponding radio button instead. After clicking the ¡°Input¡± radio button, it shows:
Give the data source a name, default as ¡°UnnamedInput¡± and fill the keywords in the text box, each keyword in a line:
Then press [Next], a confirmation page is shown, click on the ¡®Done¡¯ link, and we return to the original data source page.
Now select the ¡°UnnamedInput¡± from the dropdown menu following the ¡°Data Source¡±, as above, and the ¡°Table: UnnamedInput¡± is shown on the right. We see the only field in the ¡°UnnamedInput¡± table is the ¡°1 | Line | memo¡±.
We are going to submit the ¡°Line¡± field from the database to the ¡°term | for * Limits | Human cancer¡± input of the form. First click on the input box following the ¡°term¡±, and then click on the ¡°Line¡± field, the ¡°Line¡± field will be shown in the input box:
Finally, click the [Confirm] button. We are done with the batch definition.
Now re-run the Pubmed robot, and we will see it continuously draw input from our list of keywords and do the search with each keyword.
