cedures and Technics), Group F3 (Behavioral and Mental Disorders), and Group M (Named Groups, such as Blacks, Jews, Parents, Women, Students, etc.). FIGURE II.5 illus- trates a section of the 1980 subject index with the main heading "Neoplasms" (from Group C) and the subheading "Psychology." Because the article cited here is not in English, its translated title is placed in brackets and the original language is indicated by a three-letter code in parentheses following the citation. In addition, we are told that there is an English abstract of the article in the issue of the journal in which it appears. In the author index, only the original language title of the article is given (FIGURE II. 1).


Conclusion

Because of the psychological categories included in its indexing terminology and the use of "Psychology" as a standard subheading, Index Medicus is a very useful supple- mental index for psychological research. The subject index is not very difficult to use, but to use it effectively you must learn how to use Medical Subject Headings. Although you might need the help of a reference librarian when you first try to use Medical Subject Headings, you will find that the effort needed to learn how to use it properly will be rewarded by an improved retrieval of relevant articles from Index Medicus.
