Overview of EMBASE.
Why use it?
- Good coverage of wide range of clinical medical topics, but particularly strong in pharmacology and psychiatry when compared with Medline.
- Good European journal coverage.
- Well structured controlled thesaurus (Emtree) for good relevancy of results.
- In addition to journal articles, covers meetings, conferences and symposia.
- Shorter Indexing delay than Medline: 4 to 8 weeks.
Bear in mind ...
- Coverage: 1980 to present.
