NLM Medical Text Indexer (MTI)
The NLM Medical Text Indexer (MTI) combines human NLM Index Section expertise and Natural Language Processing technology to curate the biomedical literature more efficiently and consistently. MTI is the main product of the Indexing Initiative project and has been providing indexing recommendations based on the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) vocabulary since 2002. In 2011, NLM expanded MTI’s role by designating it as the first-line indexer (MTIFL) for a few journals; today the MTIFL workflow includes over 150 journals and continues to increase. The close collaboration of the NLM Index Section, Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, and Office of Computer & Communications Systems continues to expand and refine the ability of MTI to provide assistance to the indexers.
