2014 January 10 [posted]

Broad Subject Terms are MeSH headings that describe the overall coverage of an indexed journal. These terms, which are also searchable in the NLM Catalog database, have recently been updated as follows:


Anti-Infective Agents - includes Antibacterial, Antifungal, Antiviral, and Antiparasitic agents
[was Anti-Bacterial Agents]


Social Medicine
[journals previously tagged with this value now tagged with either Public Health; Social Sciences; Epidemiology; or Health Services]

Other edits to adjust various "includes," "see," and "see also" notes were also made.
