MLS 471 - Medical Lab Science: Selecting Keywords

Resources for Dr. Brandhagen's case-study course assignment.

Selecting Keywords for your Artice/Abstract

Some tools you can use to find keywords describing your case study/case report:

  • Look for author keywords or MeSH headings in a PubMed or MedLine record that is related to your topic.
  • Use the MeSH database to search for Medical Subject Headings related to your topic.
  • Use the thesaurus in another science or health science database such as Web of Science or Cochrane Library.  These databases are linked from our Pharmacy Research Guide.
