LILDBI-Web software is currently used for administration of databases according with the LILACS Methodology. As other systems, LILDBI-Web has common bases which allow the filling of some fields by selection, without needing to enter data. This resource helps in the standardization of the entries. Some of these bases contain data that are changed with a certain frequency, and thus, need to be updated in each instance of LILDBI-Web.

This is the case of DeCS, Health Sciences Descriptors, controlled vocabulary used for LILACS Methodology. It contains descriptors to represents the matters of the documents.

About the update

Decs is updated annually.

Each Cooperating Center (CC) is responsible for updating their LILDBI-Web instance.

Exceptions occur when the CC is a member of a Thematic Network (Nursing, Dentistry and Psychology) which data entry is made centrally in a single database. In this case, update must be made by the Network Coordination. However, if the CC cooperates with the thematic base and also maintains an institutional base, the CC will be responsible for updating their base.

Note: DeCS update should not be confused with the version update of LILDBI-Web system. To know more about it, see the page Upgrading LILDBI-Web versions (avaliable on Spanish [1] and Portuguese [2] languages. English version coming soon).


Important!
