Searching Policy Issues in PubMed

Use the "Legislation and Jurisprudence" MeSH Subheading to focus on policy issues.  Select this subheading from the MeSH term entry in the MeSH database, or as a field search from the Advanced Search page.

Mapping Resources

  • Philadelphia Boundaries: PolicyMap has activated a special selection of boundaries that can be added to Philadelpha-area maps, including City Council districts, school catchment areas, and political wards and divisions. Neighborhood labels are also available -- but not boundaries because no two Philadelphia residents will ever agree on where one neighborhood begins and another ends.
