The Medline number/PubMed ID is a unique identifier which can be located at the Medline/PubMed website. If a paper is not archived there, leave this field blank.
Use only keywords published with the papers. If no keywords are listed in the publication, do not use any keywords. Be precise - "fMRI" and "functional MRI" are considered two different keywords. Do not use capital letters except for proper names/nouns or acronyms.
Include all author names listed in the publication. Put authors the same order as listed in the publication.
Format names as last name followed by the initials of first names. Use as little punctuation as possible - don't put a period after initials. You can use hyphens in last names, but do not hyphenate first names.
Avoid adding additional versions of an author's name. Try to re-use an existing formatting if it exists in the database.

- Friston K and Friston K J are the same - use the entry already in the database.
