Search Medica - The GPs search engine

Yet more vertical search engines. Though this one is in the UK.

It could get quite useful for the medical community, though it will have to struggle to gain usage above Google Scholar.

Good to see people taking on Google on it's own turf though. The interface itself seems to use the clustering idea in order to deliver the best results.

It'd be interesting to see how they intend to make money out of it. Doesn't seem to be anything very obvious here. As I'm cynical, this makes me slightly suspicous. The site is being run by CMP medica who run a large number of journals. Might there be some kind of bias going on?
