Embase database now available: 25 million citations strong

We are happy to announce that UC Berkeley campus users now have access to Embase, a biomedical and pharmacological database with over 25 million citations.


Comprised of the MEDLINE database (which is also in PubMed) and citations from over 2,000 unique-to-Embase journal titles, Embase has especially strong coverage in drug, pharmaceutical, and toxicological research, including economic evaluations. Over 7,600 journals from over 90 countries are indexed as well as conference abstracts from over 2,000 conferences.

Topics covered include alternative and complementary medicine, biochemistry, biomedical engineering & medical devices, clinical medicine, genetics, healthcare policy & management, infectious diseases, microbiology, molecular biology, occupational and environmental health, pharmacology & toxicology, and more. Embase uses a sophisticated indexing system called Emtree that you can use to build strong and precise searches, especially on disease and drug/substance topics.

  • 1940s - current: MEDLINE records
