Elsevier Introduces New Nursing/Allied Health Database

Elsevier ( introduced the beta version of EMCare, a new bibliographic database drawn from more than 2,700 international source titles that includes close to 2 million records from the nursing, allied health, and biomedical literature. The company said EMCare is competitively priced and designed to be an affordable alternative to other nursing and allied health databases. EMCare includes unique content not found in other nursing and allied health databases and features 1,200 titles not covered by Elsevier's EMBASE. The new database will be updated weekly and will be available on several commercial online hosts starting in January 2006.

EMCare provides cover-to-cover indexing of more than 2,700 international source titles, including peer-reviewed journals, trade publications, and electronic-only titles. It currently features a 10-year backfile and will add close to 250,000 new records each year. Coverage is comprehensive and includes evidence-based healthcare; all nursing specialties and professions; nursing education and training; nursing development and management; health and healthcare economics; midwifery; clinical, medical, and healthcare social work; psychiatry and mental health; traumatology; emergency and critical care medicine; emergency services; biomedicine; dental hygiene; nutrition and dietetics; physical therapy; and surgical technology.

Underlying the indexing is EMTREE, Elsevier's Life Science Thesaurus, which has been significantly expanded with close to 1,500 nursing terms in addition to existing allied health terms.
