Looking to Demonstrate Impact From Your Research? Suggest a MeSH Term

Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) is the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) controlled vocabulary thesaurus. It consists of descriptor terms in a hierarchical structure that permits searching at various levels of specificity. MeSH is used by NLM for describing the content of articles from over 5,000 leading biomedical journals indexed in the MEDLINE®/PubMED® database, and for books and related materials used by NLM.

The staff at NLM update MeSH descriptor terms on a regular basis and welcome suggestions for new or revised MeSH terms.

Has your research resulted in a new term reflecting a new discovery, disease,  process or concept? Or does your research expand upon an existing MeSH term? Is the term referred to in your journal articles or conference abstracts? Is the term being used by others? If so, consider submitting the term to NLM for consideration as an official MeSH term. NLM has a form, Suggestion for Medical Subject Headings Change, for submitting suggestions.
