About this event

Are you working on a scoping review, systematic review, meta-analysis, starting new research, or other project requiring a comprehensive literature review? Come learn how to search MEDLINE and Embase via the Ovid interface.

MEDLINE is one of the premier biomedical databases. While offering a simple basic search within the public PubMed interface, its advanced search is laborious. Ovid allows more direct/immediate control of and precision for your searches. Embase prides itself on having everything in MEDLINE, plus another 2,900 journals not available in MEDLINE. We'll teach you the best practices for searching through both within Ovid, including:

  • breaking down topics into searchable concepts
  • building search strategies with controlled vocabulary AND keywords
  • harvesting search terms
  • and more...
