Newly Maintained MEDLINE for 2011 MeSH Now Available in PubMed
The National Library of Medicine® (NLM®) is currently involved in MEDLINE year-end processing (YEP) activities. These include changing the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) and Supplementary Concept Substance Names on existing MEDLINE citations to conform with the 2011 version of MeSH, and other global changes.
November 17, 2010: NLM expects to temporarily suspend the addition of fully-indexed MEDLINE citations to PubMed. Publisher-supplied and in process citations will continue to be added.
- Mid-December 2010: PubMed MEDLINE citations, translation tables, and the MeSH database will have been updated to reflect 2011 MeSH.
For details about the impact on searching from November 17 to mid-December, see: Annual MEDLINE®/PubMed® Year-End Processing (YEP): Impact on Searching During Fall 2010.
For background information on the general kinds of changes made annually, see: Annual MEDLINE®/PubMed® Year-End Processing (YEP): Background Information.
