 Abstract
The purpose of this study is to analyze the equality between keywords used in the Journal of the Korean Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and medical subject headings (MeSH). A total of 4,353 English keywords in 1,165 papers from 1998 to 2014 were eligible for this study. We classified them according to equality to MeSH. We assayed patterns of errors in using MeSH, and reviewed frequently used non-MeSH terms. 24.9% of total keywords were completely coincident with MeSH terms, 75.1% were not MeSH terms. The results show that the accordance rate of keywords with MeSH terms in the Journal of the Korean Pediatric Dentistry is at a low level. Therefore, there is a need for authors to understand MeSH more specifically and accurately. Use of proper keywords aligned with the international standards such as MeSH is important to be properly cited. Authors should pay attention and be educated on the correct use of MeSH as keywords.
