NLM Classification Updated, February 4, 2022

The major focus of the 2022 winter edition was the evaluation of the 2022 MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) vocabulary for inclusion in the Classification index. Several additions and changes were made to the Index and Schedules based on this review. All main index headings are now linked to the 2022 vocabulary in the MeSH Browser. Additional minor updates were made to the Index and Schedules.

Summary Statistics for the 2022 Winter Edition
