Keywords are the important terms, concepts, or ideas that are identified as search terms. It is an important component of your work turning up in search results. Subject headings are more formal terms used by libraries in catalogs and some digital libraries. You can find authoritative versions of names and subjects at Library of Congress Subject Headings. Or create your own keywords to bring attention to the topics in your paper.
