  • Content is key/backbone for Embase(Over 360k conference abstracts)Continue to focus to building up content but also on enhancing functionality and indexing/quality.Possible question: Which content sources would you most like to see in Embase?Unpublished conference abstractsProprietary literatureUnique Scopus contentb.c.
  • Unique features:Every conference is summarized by a searchable review recordAll conference abstract records include searchable online abstractsAll conference abstracts & reviews are indexed with EmtreeConference name, date and location are searchable450K conferences
  • Compare the effectiveness of sitagliptin and saxagliptin in the treatment of type II diabetes mellitus (show this in Emtree)Go to Drug Search and type in sitagliptin and saxagliptin with drug comparison. Go to Emtree and show diabetes mellitus and then go to ‘type 2 diabetes mellitus’. Take this to Disease Search and combine with disease subheading ‘drug therapy’. Combine both searches.Show editing options. NOT [review]/limAdvanced combine on the Session Results: Last search above NOT saxagliptin search, for example #2 NOT #1.Quickly show Emtree to find suitable terms/subject headings and then using Drug Search to add subheadings.
  • Find disease management studies for Type II diabetesGo to Emtree and type in diabetes. Once you see the tree, select non-insulin dependant diabetes mellitus. Click on ‘take this to Disease search’. Point out ‘major focus’ option if users would like to limit their search to only records where the disease is of major importance and show on Disease Search form. Shoe quick and advanced limits.You can then add the subheading ‘disease management’. Check filters for drugs and study types.
