MeSH on Demand Tool: An Easy Way to Identify Relevant MeSH Terms

Monday, May 12th, 2014

The NLM Medical Text Indexer (MTI) combines human NLM Index Section expertise and Natural Language Processing technology to curate the biomedical literature more efficiently and consistently.

MeSH on Demand identifies MeSH Terms in your text using the NLM MTI program. After processing, MeSH on Demand returns a list of MeSH Terms relevant to your text.

Create a Custom Filter

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Setting up a filter from within your My NCBI account can be useful when you want to keep certain options available all the time. In the image below, I am signed into My NCBI and I searched for cystic fibrosis. Notice the filters that display on the right side of the screen. These are all the filters that I previously chose to display…no matter what. The number of results are displayed next to each filter even when there are no results, as with the Arabic filter in the image.

Click on the image to make it larger.

Using your My NCBI account, you can take this one step further and create a custom filter that will always display on the right side when you are logged into your account.

Watch this short video to learn how to create a custom filter.
