Systematic Reviews & Embase

Posted on: |

Systematic reviews are a very important part of biomedical literature and evidence-based medicine, as they provide a summary of the evidence available on a very specific question/issue in medical practice. One of the most important parts of a systematic review is creating the best comprehensive search possible in a variety of databases in order to find all of the available literature on the chosen topic. Embase is an excellent resource for conducting systematic reviews as the database contains literature across multiple biomedical fields from a large variety of countries. There is currently over 30 million records in Embase at the moment!

The team at Embase have created a great handy-dandy video tutorial on how to build systematic review searches in the database.  If you have any questions about accessing or using Embase, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Happy searching!
