The Calder Medical Library is able to provide Embase to its patrons once again!  This international database, which contains comprehensive journal and conference coverage in biomedical informatics, complements PubMed/MEDLINE citations, making it especially beneficial for Systematic Reviews and Meta Analyses.  In-depth indexing makes it easy to find answers, and customizable e-mail alerts support tracking and automatic information retrieval.  Whether for Systematic Reviews and/or monitoring the literature to make informed decisions in evidence-based medicine, Embase is an ideal solution.

Embase includes:

Over 6 million records and in excess of 2,700 journals that are not covered by MEDLINE

Conference abstracts from important biomedical, drug and medical device conferences dating back to 2009

Over 300,000 conference abstracts each year—information that will not be retrieved if searching MEDLINE alone.

Embase indexers use the uniquely detailed life science thesaurus Emtree, which covers trade, generic, and chemical designations for drugs, medical device trade and manufacture names, disease names, and more.  Embase offers different ways of searching and tools to facilitate finding information, from a “Quick Search” to “Advanced Search,” with limits and filters that helps streamline the search, as well as a Drug Search, Disease Search, Device Search, Article Search, Browsing, and other helpful features.

Embase can be accessed from the Calder Medical Library website under e-Databases or directly at http://www.embase.com.  Registration is free—a personal account will facilitate use of all the tools embedded in the system.  Video tutorials and handouts can be found at: http://help.elsevier.com/app/answers/list/p/9754/c/9540

Please do not hesitate to contact a Reference Librarian if you require additional information.

Librarians can be reached by phone at: 305-243-6648 or email to: reference@med.miami.edu.

EMBASE is back by popular demand!  The University of Miami has renewed its subscription to EMBASE, an excellent literature search tool for modern biomedical researchers.

EMBASE provides extensive coverage of international biomedical journals and conferences and is a key resource for generating systematic reviews, making informed decisions in evidence-based medicine, and for post-market surveillance of drugs and medical devices.

Deep Indexing:  Allows users to find the exact biomedical information they are looking for.

Easy Searching: Unique features include automatic alerts and search forms that support drug, device, and disease-focused searching.

Comprehensive Coverage: Conference and journal coverage dating as far back as 1947 lets users access information they can’t find anywhere else.

EMBASE supports the worldwide biomedical research community, providing the most relevant and up-to-date information from biomedical literature.

Systematic Reviews in support of Evidence-based Medicine

Avoid missing vital information in a field of research, build comprehensive databases of evidence gathered from trusted sources and assess the quality of information to drive clinical decision making.

Regulatory compliance

Compare therapeutic effects of substances on a disease, look up reported economic evaluations of specific drug therapies, track a specific drug trade name and retrieve information needed to comply with legislation and regulations.

JoVE has produced nearly 4,000 videos demonstrating experiments from laboratories at top research institutions delivered online to millions of scientists, educators, and students worldwide.

Current Subscriptions:

JoVE Clinical and Translational Medicine (http://www.jove.com/ctm) serves as a connection between basic research and clinical applications. Articles may present medical procedures, case studies or clinical trial methodologies. Included studies are often modeled towards predictive, preventative, personalized, and practical approaches to treatment of disease. The goal of research methodologies in this section is to improve overall patient care and prognosis.

JoVE Immunology and Infection (http://www.jove.com/i2) includes content from a variety of fields working toward a shared initiative of improving global health. Techniques evaluating the biological response to pathogens from the molecular to organismal level are presented as well as therapeutic agents and their efficacy in treating disease.

JoVE Neuroscience (http://www.jove.com/neuro) is a multidisciplinary section devoted to investigations of the structure, function, physiology, and pathophysiology of the brain and nervous system. Included methodologies range from molecular and cellular level studies to full central and peripheral neural systems. Potential treatment platforms and surgical techniques for neurological diseases and disorders are also presented in this section.

How to JoVE it:

In the Lab: Quickly on board new students and lab techs by training them with video protocols

In the Classroom: Use videos to supplement your lectures by giving your students and insider’s look at complex lab techniques

At a Conference: Incorporate video into your presentation, or play video on your tablet to bring the methods in your poster to life

Before Lab: Save precious lab time by assigning a video pre-lab so students are able to take complete advantage of limited bench time

At Lab Meetings: Enhance group discussions of complex techniques with videos that explain the intricacies of scientific methods

On the Go: Mobile app – coming soon!  Watch videos on your lunch break, sitting on the couch, commuting to work—anywhere!
