New Database Added for all Boston University Access : Embase

Embase includes over six million records and more than 2,900 journals that are not covered in MEDLINE which makes this an excellent database to complement current BU databases. It also includes conference abstracts from biomedical, drug and medical device conferences dating back to 2009. Embase currently indexes 6,000+ conferences covering over 2 million conference abstracts.

Embase is international in scope which supports faculty, students and researchers on both the Charles River and Medical campuses; is broad in subject scope and highly cross-disciplinary including allied health, basic sciences, genetics, pharmacology, biotechnology, allied health sciences, environmental health, public health, forensics, etc.; is an essential research database in support of the increasing numbers of requests for librarian assistance for systematic reviews; and enhances access to high quality global information sources for Boston University.
