Automatic Term Mapping (continued)

The Author Index:

If the phrase is not found in the MeSH or Journal Translation Tables and even if it is found in the Full Author Name Translation Table, PubMed checks the Author Index for a match.

Enter the author's name in the form of last name plus initials. [Show Me]

PubMed will automatically truncate the author's name to account for varying initials.

To turn off automatic truncation of an author's name, surround the name with double quotes and use the [au] tag. [Show Me]

If you are searching with last name only, be sure to use the [au] tag. [Show Me]

The Full Investigator Translation Table and Investigator Index:

If the phrase is not found in the MeSH or Journal Translation Tables and even if it is found in the Full Author Name Translation Table or Author Index, PubMed checks the Full Investigator name Translation Table, then Investigator Index for a match.

The names in the Full Investigator Translation Table and the Investigator Index are formatted and searchable in the same way as the Full Author Name Table and Author Index (see above). See more information about investigator names.
