Details of the changes made to MeSH for 2011 have been released on the latest NLM technical bulletin.
These changes will take effect on updates published from January 2011 onwards. The changes are not made retrospectively.
If you have saved searches in Medline or PubMed, I recommend that you check the changes to ensure your searches continue to include the most up to date MeSH terms.
MeSH is updated annually to ensure it incorporates new areas of research and reflects changing terminology.
Get in touch with the Library if you have any questions about the update and how this may impact on you.
