What Are Supplementary Concept Records? (continued)

Every SCR is mapped to a MeSH heading which is automatically added to the citation when an indexer chooses an SCR to describe an article. These mapped terms can be found in the MeSH Database:

Example:
coenzyme Q10 [Substance Name]

Heading Mapped to:
Ubiquinone/analogs and derivatives

Some SCRs will eventually graduate to become “true” MeSH headings. An example of this is oseltamivir. This term was added as a heading in 2007, but before that it was an SCR, so is searchable back to 1997.

Note: Not all Supplementary Concepts are substances. There are also terms for diseases and protocols included in MeSH as SCRs.
