Ovid Embase coverage of MEDLINE journals – April 2017


Ovid Embase coverage of MEDLINE journals

Dear Ovid Embase Customer:

During May 2017, Elsevier will bring the incorporation of MEDLINE content in Embase up to par with the Elsevier policy for proper use of data. For that reason they have been validating the content received from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the journal level. Going forward, coverage of content from MEDLINE journals will be based on permission to cover: content will be included in Embase only after having received a licensing agreement from the journal’s publisher and if it falls within the Elsevier publisher embargo policy.

Acquisition of licenses is an ongoing process. To date, permission has been received to cover 6,756 out of 6,958 MEDLINE titles (97%); to make the content selection process transparent, new Embase journal coverage lists, including MEDLINE titles, will be made publicly available on Embase website three times per year. Until permission is received to cover, the following list MEDLINE titles will no longer be updated in Embase:

Customer Support is available if you have any questions at [email protected] and we are eager to provide additional training and assistance as needed.
