MEDLINE®/PubMed® Year-End Processing (YEP) Activities
Other pertinent articles:
The National Library of Medicine® (NLM®) is currently involved in MEDLINE year-end processing activities. These include changing the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) and Supplementary Concept Substance Names on existing MEDLINE citations to conform with the 2008 version of MeSH, and other global changes.
November 14, 2007: NLM expects to temporarily halt the addition of fully-indexed MEDLINE citations to PubMed.
- Early December 2007: PubMed's MEDLINE citations, translation tables, and the MeSH database have been updated to reflect 2008 MeSH.
For details about the impact on searching from November 14 to early December, see: Annual MEDLINE®/PubMed® Year-End Processing (YEP): Impact on Searching During Fall 2007.
For background information on the general kinds of changes made annually, see: Annual MEDLINE®/PubMed® Year-End Processing (YEP): Background Information.
