EMBASE
(Trial Period: until 30 June 2010)

EMBASE is a comprehensive biomedical and pharmacological database. It focuses on drug and pharmaceutical research and provides access to citations and abstracts from international peer-reviewed journals in tracking drug adverse events, comparing drug therapies, and evidence-based medicine research.

HKBU’s trial contains records from 1980 to current, majority of which have author-written abstracts. Similar to other databases supported by the OVID platform, EMBASE has its own thesaurus and provides a powerful subject heading search. Users may select terms from the database’s hierarchical subject tree to expand or focus their search. The option to select and simultaneously search other HKBU-subscribed OVID databases (Medline, EBM Review, and AMED) is available.


Free trial electronic resources can be accessed on the library homepage at: http://www.hkbu.edu.hk/lib/new/resources.html
