Abstract

EMBASE is published by the Secondary Publishing Division of Elsevier Science B.V., the Dutch-based publishing company that is now part of the Reed Elsevier family. From its origins in 1946 (as a biomedical information service producing the Excerpta Medica Abstract Journals), EMBASE has developed into a major biomedical database with particular emphasis on coverage of drugs and chemicals. It is available via major online vendors, selected academic networks, and CD-ROM, and is also sold (as subsets) to individual corporate customers.
