PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

The functions for assessing the heterogeneity and inconsistency in network meta-analysis, for producing a net heat plot and a network graph are now implemented in the R package netmeta with version 0.4-0 and are available from the standard CRAN repository.
