Embase Database Reload – October 2019


Embase Database Reload

Dear Ovid Embase Customer:

The Embase (EMED) Database is being reloaded. We expect it to be live on Monday November 4, 2019. Alerts will be run on the weekend of November 2, 2019 prior to the reload.

Please note Embase will be reloaded to implement the new 2019 Thesaurus Tool. Changes in the new thesaurus can be found here.

In addition, Ovid has made the following changes:
3 Changed Fields:

  • ISSN (IS) – when only the Electronic ISSN is available, it will now display in this field followed by the word ‘(electronic)’.
  • Number of References (NR) -Field code change from RF to NR in order to match the field name in Ovid MEDLINE.
  • Retraction Notice (NE) – Field code change from NR to NE.

Feel free to contact Customer Support with any questions by sending an email to
