MeSH Terms:

What is MeSH?

Medical Subject Headings

We have integrated Faculty Profiles with the U.S. National Library of Medicine's MeSH terms. For every publication added to a profile, we pull its MeSH terms and display it here. This enhancement allows you to search for research themes of our faculty members.

Click on any of the terms below to see additional researchers with similar keywords.

MeSH is:

  • an acronym for Medical Subject Headings.
  • the U.S. National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary (thesaurus).
  • a vocabulary that gives uniformity and consistency to the indexing and cataloging of biomedical literature.
  • a distinctive feature of MEDLINE.
  • arranged in a hierarchical manner called the MeSH Tree Structures.
  • updated annually.

MeSH Vocabulary includes four types of terms:

  • Headings
  • Subheadings
  • Supplementary Concept Records
  • Publication Characteristics (or Types)

Over 26,000 MeSH headings (also called "main headings" or "descriptors" represents concepts found in the biomedical literature

Subheadings - (also called qualifiers) are attached to MeSH headings to describe a specific aspect of a concept.

Supplementary Concept Records are over 200,000 terms in a separate thesaurus from the Medical Subject Headings. These are primarily substance terms, but also include some protocols and rare desease terms. These terms are updated weekly.

Publication Characteristics or (Publication Types) describe the type of publication being indexed; i.e., what the item is, not what the article is about.
