Descriptive terms to aid in searching, or finding similar nanoapplications. This is a user-centric descriptive modifier, and not a more abstract controlled list of terms. This is where terminology from various fields of research, or consumer terminology can be applied to assist in categorizing nanoapplication data to make the site more usable.

Keywords will function as the Glossary Terms for the NICE DB, and will allow for automatic cross-linking between Nano-Entries, Terminology Articles, and Index functionality across the site.
