EMBASE Now Available on EBSCOhost for Hospitals

May 19, 2009

EBSCO Publishing and Elsevier have entered into a partnership allowing hospitals to access EMBASE on EBSCOhost. EMBASE, a biomedical bibliographic database produced by Elsevier, covers drug and pharmaceutical research. It contains over 12 million records derived from biomedical articles in peer-reviewed journals. The database covers nearly 5,000 active journals. Each EMBASE record contains a full bibliographic citation, and more than 80% have an abstract. In addition, all EMBASE records are indexed using EMTREE, Elsevier’s Life Science thesaurus. EMTREE contains 55,000 preferred terms, of which 27,000 are drug terms. Representing published journals from 70 countries and 30 languages, EMBASE includes more than 12 million records from 1974 to present. Over 600,000 records are added annually.
