Databases in Focus: Embase (via the Ovid interface)

Description:  

The UniSA Library Databases in Focus series showcases features of databases available to UniSA students and staff. These concise one-hour workshops provide the opportunity to explore what these powerful literature search tools can offer for study, teaching, and research. 

 

Embase  

Embase (Excerpta Medica Database) is a biomedical and pharmacological database produced by Elsevier and is is central to any search for biomedical, pharmacological, or health-related literature. Embase Classic and Embase combined have records from 1947 to present and can be used to locate articles of interest from thousands of scholarly journals. This key database is available at UniSA via the sophisticated Ovid interface, along with several other health-focused databases.  

Attend this session to: 

  • discover why and when to use Embase (Ovid) 
  • practice basic searching 
  • explore Embase limits (search refinement options) 
  • learn key features of the contemporary Ovid platform 
  • learn about advanced search options, such as: 
    • how to use the Emtree and subject headings in Embase 
    • combining and editing searches using the search history 
  • understand the requirements of how to use Embase for systematic searching as part of a reportable, comprehensive search strategy
