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.

Following our systematic review of YouTube, the CHEO (Ottawa, Canada) and University of Ottawa research team produced and posted our own YouTube video showing evidence-based pain management strategies for infants during immunization. Following a 12-month period, we will conduct a follow-up review of posted YouTube videos showing infants being immunized to ascertain the impact of our YouTube video. See
