Finding Medical Literature in PubMed and Embase

PubMed and Embase are the most comprehensive medical literature databases and provide effective tools to identify both scientific and clinical information.

The course gives an overview over important search functions in PubMed and Embase and how to apply them for making your searches more relevant. We go through various parts of the search functionality, the use of MeSH/Emtree terms and different ways to get a focused result.

Further on we will look at saving search strategies for later use, setting up email alerts and downloading references to reference management software. We will also touch on important differences between both systems and PubMed's and Embase's strengths and gaps.

No fee for faculty members, PhD students.
