PubMed Publist


This plugin will register a shortcode [recentpublications] that will display the latest publications retrived from PubMed.

The shortcode accepts arguments to set how many papers are displayed, apply classes for custom styling, and choose from two layout options.


  • Neaten up admin – show/hide for extra search string fields
  • Make caching configurable
  • Add widget version
  • Add JS for show/hide extra results on front-end


  • Using the shortcode in a post - showing all optional arguments being used
  • Default output (using Twenty Thirteen theme) with no arguments
  • Layout options
  • Settings screen


  1. Upload the pm_publist folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit Settings -> PubMed Publist to configure the plugin and see the shortcode arguments available.
  4. Use [recentpublications] in your pages/posts where you want it to display
  5. Or use <?php do_shortcode('recentpublications'); ?> in your templates


What are the layouts available

You can see the layout options on the Screenshots page. After installing they are also shown on the Settings page.
