We're pleased to announce updates and improvements to the Embase database on ProQuest Dialog, effective November 10, 2016.
Embase now features triple indexing links and medical device subheadings. We've made it possible to identify documents sourced from Embase as well as MEDLINE®. Embase Alert has been discontinued, and in-process material is now available in Embase.
You can find details on these changes below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your account manager or email us at email@example.com.
Triple indexing links are subject phrases consisting of three parts: a main Emtree heading (for a drug, device, or disease), a "key" subheading, and another main Emtree heading. Triple links enable very accurate assessment of the content of the original article and very precise retrieval.
Medical device information may be indexed with one of four subheadings: adverse device effect, device comparison, clinical trial, and device economics. These are displayed with the rest of the subject information in the document.
Embase includes all complete MEDLINE documents, as well as those which are indexed independently by Elsevier for Embase. Documents which are sourced from MEDLINE can be identified in the document display when the first or second entry in the Subject list is "MEDLINE."
The Embase Alert database has been discontinued, and in-process documents, including "articles in press," are now available in Embase itself.
