New features and important changes are coming to Embase (EMED) on Ovid. These changes will improve the overall Embase experience on Ovid and have been carefully considered in partnership with Elsevier, but as with any change we ask that you please carefully review the updates below and prepare accordingly. Ovid Customer Support is available if you have any questions at [email protected] and we are eager to provide additional training and assistance during this transition as needed.
