MeSH Indexing Policy Change for Obituaries and In Memoriam. NLM Tech Bull. 2018 May-Jun;(422):b5.

2018 May 21 [posted]

As of June 1, 2018, obituaries & in memoriam articles will no longer be cited & indexed with Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) for MEDLINE.

In the past, many obituaries & “in memoriam” articles were indexed for MEDLINE based on subjective criteria that lead to inconsistent coverage; if an article was substantive it was cited and indexed with MeSH. However, most obituaries and in memoriam articles are not substantive & will no longer be cited & indexed. Substantive biographies will continue to be indexed for MEDLINE.
