Short Note: Co-occurring Words: Finding Information About Alternatives to Animal Testing

Jane Huggins

A collection of co-occurring words has been gathered from a small database of abstracts about alternatives to skin irritation testing by using Boolean logic. Words were selected according to a strategy based on methodology. Such words and their co-occurrences may be considered an archival code by which data that describe alternatives to skin irritation testing can be more readily recognised. As such, they can be used to enhance the efficiency with which information about this area of alternatives to animal testing is found in journal articles, databases and Web sites.
