Appendix ASearch Strategies

Number of citations in ()
/ after an index term indicates that all subheadings were selected.
* before an index term indicates that that term was focused - i.e. limited to records where major MeSH/Emtree term.
“exp” before an index term indicates that the term was exploded.
.tw. indicates a search for a term in title/abstract.
.mp. indicates a free text search for a term.
.pt. indicates a search for a publication type.
$ at the end of a term indicates that this term has been truncated.
? in the middle of a term indicates the use of a wildcard.
adj indicates a search for two terms where they appear adjacent to one another.
sh indicates a search term for subheading.
