2018 February 27 [posted]
PubMed subject filter strategies are reviewed each year to determine if modifications are necessary. Modifications may include revisions due to changes in Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) vocabulary or MEDLINE journals, adding or deleting terms, & changing parts of a strategy to optimize retrieval. The following subset strategies were recently revised:
- Complementary Medicine
- Dietary Supplements
- Veterinary Science
A new subject filter was added this year: Developmental & Reproductive Toxicology (DART). This filter was created to facilitate searching for subjects in the area of teratology & other aspects of developmental & reproductive toxicology.
