Thesaurus of Political Science Indexing Terms

"The Thesaurus of Political Science Indexing Terms contains an alphabetical listing of Main Term descriptors used for indexing and searching the PS database and printed index, beginning with the May 2002 issue. Efforts were made to preserve the terminology of the controlled vocabularies used in the backfiles of ABC POL SCI and IFI/Plenum Political Science Abstracts. Associated term relationships are displayed under each Main Term. These may include a Descriptor Code, Scope Note, Use For and Use references, Broader Terms and Narrower Terms, and Related Terms. The thesaurus terms are used by indexers to describe the contents of publications in a consistent, comprehensive, and concise manner. These terms are listed in the Descriptors field (DE=) of each record added to the database. A searcher uses these terms to retrieve the most precise set of relevant documents."
