Super Searching: PubMed, Embase, and Beyond

Let us show you how to get the best results from your search.

Go beyond Google search methods to get a handle on database logic. Build complex search strategies; try some PubMed tricks and tips, and set up alerts to stay informed when new articles are published in your field.

And try two other databases: Web of Science and Embase. In Web of Science you can identify articles, find where an author or article has been cited, and find articles an article has cited. In this database, articles are linked by citations. You can also find ‘hot articles’ and ‘highly cited articles.’ These are high-impact articles, receiving so many citations from other articles that they are in the top 1% of articles in their academic field.

Produced by Elsevier Science, Embase covers additional EU literature, so you will find unique citations here that are not in PubMed. It includes all of Medline plus over 2,000 extra titles, and 260,000 conference abstracts (over 24 million records from more than 7,500 journals). Embase covers the fields of medicine, biomedical sciences, drugs and pharmacy.

You will learn:

  • Structured database searching for more complex searches
  • PubMed tips and tricks
  • Basic Web of Science search features
  • Basic Embase search features
