Ovid Term Finder

Ovid Term Finder

Ovid Term Finder helps users access key information as they construct their search without having to leave the Advanced Search page.

Clicking on the Ovid Term Finder button launches an overlay button that allows searchers to easily find terms and add them to their search or copy to the clipboard without having to cycle through multiple pages. Term Finder does not affect any existing workflows on Ovid. Instead, it helps users discover terms and construct complex searches.

Key features in Term Finder include:

  • Mapped MeSH Results
  • Interactive MeSH browser
  • Definitions from Stedman’s Medical Dictionary
  • Results from MeSH Permuted Index
  • Related Terms from the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS)
  • Add to search functionality
