Q. What are “subject terms” like MeSH in PubMed?

Answer

Subject terms allow you to perform more advanced searches by searching by a concept or topic, rather than just matching text as is done by keywords. Using subject terms and keywords together permit you to conduct a comprehensive search that helps find better and more relevant results. If you want a fuller explanation on subject terms, please reach out to the medical librarian at jason.fetty@ku.ac.ae.
