In April I posted that we had started to investigate adding MeSH to Trip. Just a quick note to report that our investigations have successfully been completed, thanks to great help from the NLM. This has allowed us to auto-tag documents (PDFs or web-pages) with MeSH** with a reasonable accuracy.
So, all documents on Trip will have associated MeSH terms:
- PubMed documents – autograb the MeSH terms assigned by the NLM
- Non-PubMed documents (e.g. guidelines, synopses) – auto-tag documents using our new system
After that it’s a question of getting it to work on Trip! Hopefully within three months…
** Note: only assigns MeSH, not major/minor or subheadings
