Embase "vs." MEDLINE
Embase currently contains over 28 million records from 1947 onwards. Currently 4,800 journals are indexed for Embase in 30 languages. Contains peer-reviewed literature, in-press publications and many conference abstracts. Contains more European literature than MEDLINE.
MEDLINEcurrently contains over 24 million references to journal articles from the 1940s onwards. Currently 5,200 journals in 37 languages are indexed for MEDLINE.
Of the 4,800 journals indexed in Embase, 1,800 are not indexed in MEDLINE. Similarly, of the 5,200 journals indexed in MEDLINE, 1,800 are not indexed in Embase.
You can search MEDLINE and Embase simultaneously through Embase. The amount of records in Embase includes the MEDLINE records. Records are mostly "de-duped".
Embase uses the Emtree thesaurus, similar to MEDLINE's MeSH thesaurus.
