Overview of the Embase database

Embase provides comprehensive bibliographic coverage of the literature on drugs and pharmacology. It also covers all other aspects of human medicine and related disciplines.

Embase is a key resource for biomedical evidence. From published, peer-reviewed literature to in-press publications and conference abstracts, it covers a wide range of sources.  As a result, Embase is recognized as an authoritative source for generating systematic reviews. In particular, Embase’s comprehensive indexing of trial and study types, reviews and meta analyses ensures maximum searchability.

Whether you are monitoring literature to make decisions in evidence-based medicine or are engaged in post-market monitoring, Embase is the ideal solution.

Accordingly, the Embase database includes conference abstracts from 11,500+ biomedical, drug and medical device conferences dating back to 2009.

What’s more, full-text indexing of drug, disease and medical device data supports precise searching via the Emtree thesaurus. This covers trade, generic and chemical designations for drugs, medical device trade and manufacturer names, disease names and more. For this purpose, Dialog offers an interactive thesaurus, updated three times per year, to provide full access to all these terms.
