Cancer Therapy (Preclinical and Clinical): A Decimal Classification, (Categories 51.1, 51.2, and 51.3).
Schneider, John H.
This hierarchical decimal classification of information related to cancer therapy in humans and animals (preceeded by a few general categories) is a working draft of categories taken from an extensive classification of biomedical information. Because the classification identifies very small areas of cancer information, it can be used for precise matching of cancer researchers with useful documents or data in information systems, and for detailed analysis of large cancer research programs. The use of this classification in an automated information system has been described in the following reference: J. H. Schneider, "Selective Dissemination and Indexing of Scientific Information.""Science" 173, 300-308, 1971. This paper describes the use of these classifications for precise matching of 103 cancer research scientists against a data base of 1,396 articles published in 12 leading cancer research journals. (ED 025 270 and LI 004 019-LI 004 020 are related documents.) (Author)
