Category G - Phenomena and Processes

Indexing Principles

Distinguish these terms from the related discipline terms in Category H. Use the terms from Category G for articles on the biological process or phenomena and terms from Category H for articles on the field of study.

CATEGORY G CATEGORY H
BIOPHYSICAL PHENOMENA BIOPHYSICS
GENETIC PHENOMENA GENETICS
PHYSIOLOGICAL PHENOMENA PHYSIOLOGY
Biophysics education in medical school
BIOPHYSICS/*educ
*EDUCATION, MEDICAL

The biophysics of Archaea
*ARCHAEA
*BIOPHYSICAL PHENOMENA

The G terms listed above are very general, and in most cases a more specific term indented under them will be needed in a particular article. Some of these terms have subheading counterparts:

CATEGORY G SUBHEADING
METABOLISM /metabolism
PHARMACOKINETICS /pharmacokinetics

 

The indexer will almost always use another MeSH term with the subheading rather than use these very general terms.
