The Abridged Index Medicus is designed to afford rapid access to selected biomedical journal literature of immediate interest to the practicing physician.

Each issue contains citations from 100 English-language journals, representing a subset of one month’s input into the National Library of Medicine’s computer-based MEDLARS (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System). The selec- tion of the journals was made by the Library with guidance from a group of consultants consisting of physicians, medical editors, and medical librarians. Consideration was given to the quality of the journals, usefulness of journal content for the medical practictioner, and the need for providing coverage of all fields of clinical medicine. In some fields, where there are more high- quality journals than could be included in the bibliography, consideration was given to the availability of the journals to the American practitioner. In limiting the size of Abridged Index Medicus it was necessary to omit many excellent pub- lications. The list of journals indexed will be reviewed period- ically and is subject to change. On those occasions when a physician’s interests require a scanning of the literature that is not contained in the Abridged Index Medicus, he will, as before, turn to the full Index Medicus and to the numerous, other bibliographic sources.

Journal issues do not arrive at the National Library of Medicine with perfect regularity, nor is it possible to maintain a precise schedule for indexing. Therefore, a given month’s Abridged Index Medicus may contain citations to articles from more than one issue of a monthly journal, or a journal may not be covered in a given issue of AJM.


Input to MEDLARS begins with the indexing of journal articles. The content of each article is analyzed and described by a group of terms (subject headings) selected from Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), the National Library of Medicine’s authority list of technical terms. The bibliographic citations in Abridged Index Medicus appear under those subject headings. An acquaintance with MeSH (see publications list) will help the user of AIM determine which specific headings to consult.

When articles are indexed, the most specific term available in MeSH is used. Thus, if an article is concerned with erythro- mycin, it would be indexed under that term, rather than the broader “antibiotics.” Under the latter term, one would find only: (a) articles dealing with antibiotics generally, (b) those that deal in a very general way with a large number of named antibiotics, or (c) those that deal with specific antibiotics which have not been separately listed in MeSH.

The physician who is interested in one concept may find that the broader term is also worth examining for articles of possible interest. Although one may be interested primarily in antifungal antibiotics, articles on the general subject of anti- fungal agents may be useful.

The physician who wants articles on some aspect of the use of antibiotics in pediatric practice would certainly want not only general articles that would appear under “antibiotics,” but also those concerned with specific antibiotics.

Monthly issues of Abridged Index Medicus are arranged in two sections: Subject Section and Author Section.

Subject Section

Each article cited in AJM will be found under several sub- ject headings, which represent the central concepts of the article. The citation appears in full under each subject heading. Each citation contains the following élements, in order: title of article; first author (if more than one) or sole author; journal title abbreviation; volume number; inclusive pagination; and date of issue.


Tendon transfers to improve grasp after injuries of the cer- vical spinal cord. Freehafer AA, et al. J Bone Joint Surg [Am] 56:951-9, July 74

The above citation appears under four subject headings:




In the citations, under each of the subject headings, only the first author’s name appears. (For names of the second and third authors, refer to the Author Section.)

Journal titles are abbreviated; the full title may be found by reference to the abbreviation listing on the next page.

Author Section

References in the Author Section cite a maximum of three authors’ names; the title of the article; the journal title abbrevia- tion; volume number; inclusive pagination; date of issue. Example:

Freehafer AA, Vonhaam E, Allen V: Tendon transfers to improve grasp after injuries of the cervical spinal cord.

J Bone Joint Surg [Am] 56:951-9, July 74

Complete citations are printed only under the first author’s name; the second and third authors’ names are cross-referenced to the first author’s name.
