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.
