Mapping of medical acronyms and initialisms to Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) across selected systems

Mary Shultz
2006 Journal of the Medical Library Association  
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how various MEDLINE Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) interfaces map acronyms and initialisms to the MeSH vocabulary.  ...  Given the common use of acronyms and initialisms in the health sciences, searchers may be entering these abbreviated terms rather than full phrases when searching online systems.  ...  The effectiveness of searching by acronyms and initialisms in MEDLINE depends on how successfully they are mapped to their corresponding Medical Subject Headings (MeSH).  ...
