Uncover more evidence with Embase

Biomedical literature is an essential resource for your team. So why only give them access to part of it?

Free tools like MEDLINE are available to all. But leading researchers prefer Embase to access 2,900 additional journals along with 3.6 million abstracts from 11,500 conferences. This helps them uncover drug-disease relationships and drug-drug interactions that others don’t – leading to new discoveries and preventing unnecessary risk.

With more robust indexing and advanced search functions and automated searching, Embase not only helps you dig deeper but also to work more efficiently. Find efficacy studies, disease-related information and adverse drug events quickly and easily – giving you stronger evidence and lower risk while revealing new opportunities that others miss.

How Embase helps you


Depend on reputable content

The guidelines of at least six highly-regarded regulatory authorities, health technology assessment bodies and other EBM-related agencies specifically name Embase as a potential source to be used.


Gain competitive advantage

Embase gives you access to a deeper level of relationships and connectedness amongst literature, helping you to uncover new opportunities that may be missed by competitors.


Achieve better outcomes

Embase’s PICO search functionality and sophisticated indexing makes information gathering faster, enabling stronger arguments in support of market access and improved benefit-risk management for pharmacovigilance.


Retrieve the best available TCM evidence

Embase introduced the first systematic classification of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) taxonomy that enables a standard and unique way of retrieving precise information.
