Author Keywords in PubMed

Torre S. Author Keywords in PubMed. NLM Tech Bull. 2013 Jan-Feb;(390):e2.

2013 February 07 [posted]

PubMed now displays author keywords when supplied by publishers. NLM will not review author keywords for accuracy or add them to non-publisher supplied citations. Author keywords can be searched untagged or using the Other Term [OT] or Text Words [TW] tags. Author Keywords are available on the Abstract, MEDLINE, and XML displays.

Author keywords are preceded by a KEYWORDS label and appear below the abstract text on the Abstract display (see Figure 1).

Author keywords appear in the OT field of the MEDLINE display (see Figure 2).

Users of the XML display will see author keywords in the Keyword element of KeywordList (see Figure 3).
