What is Embase?
What are the main benefits of Embase?
What is Embase Classic?
If using MEDLINE, do I need Embase?
- Over 2000 journals not indexed on PubMed, especially from countries outside North America
- Over 300,000 conference abstracts from 1000 conferences each year (since 2009)
- In-depth drug and medical device indexing based on the Emtree Life Science thesaurus, which has over twice as many terms as the PubMed (MEDLINE) thesaurus (MeSH)
If I have Scopus, do I need Embase?
However, since Scopus does not make use of the Embase thesaurus (Emtree) to facilitate synonym mapping and hierarchical searches, search results can be significantly less than on Embase. For example, a Scopus search on “heart attack” misses records mentioning “myocardial infarction” or indexed using the Emtree term “heart infarction”. In addition, Embase subheadings are not available on Scopus, so that it is not possible to limit drug searches (for example) to records focusing on adverse effects.
