Category V - Publication Characteristics

Publication Types

Publication Type (PT) is the term used to classify the types of articles published in journals. Each article has at least one Publication Type and may have more than one. In addition to assigning the appropriate MeSH headings and subheadings to an article, the indexer must also assign the appropriate Publication Type(s).

Publication Types can be added either from the Article Panel or Indexing Panel in IMS. The indexer selects the appropriate Publication Type(s) from the pull-down "pick" list.
