EMBASE - the Excerpta Medica database - is an international (but European focused) biomedical and pharmacological database that provides access to the most up-to-date information about medical and drug-related subjects. Comprehensive inclusion of drug-related information makes EMBASE particularly valuable, with coverage of 5,000+ biomedical journals from 70 countries.

Over 450,000 citations and abstracts are added yearly, with a total of 8 million+ records in the database. Each record contains the full bibliographic citation, indexing terms and codes; more than 80% of records contain abstracts.
