PubMed and an introduction to MeSH (intermediate level)


In this course you will practise the construction of a bit more complex search strings in PubMed and gain insight into the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) thesaurus.

Primary target group: Students who will soon be writing a thesis and who would like to use MeSH terms and more complex search strings for their literature searches in PubMed. Researchers are also welcome to attend.
