New Tool for Developing Complex Searches

MeSH On Demand is a new tool from the National Library of Medicine. It suggests MeSH terms based on a block of text that you provide.

This can be useful in two main situations:

  1. In systematic reviews. Systematic review searches need to be comprehensive, and it can be a challenge to find all the relevant MeSH terms to include. MeSH on Demand suggests MeSH terms that you might find useful to include in your search. If you are conducting a systematic review of the literature, don't forget to contact a librarian for searching assistance.
  2. In publication. Some journals may request author keywords. Using MeSH on Demand will enable you to submit keywords that are also MeSH terms.
