How To: Search Evidence Based Medicine Reviews

Evidence Based Medicine Reviews (EBMR) is a group of full text databases which, unlike MEDLINE, are not searched by subject or keyword, but entirely free text. Any word in the entire document can be searched.

A typical document will show the title, reviewed source, commentary author, enhanced abstract, commentary/critique and references.

Authors are searched by last name and first initial (if known) only.

Tips from an expert.

For instructions in searching any of these EBMR databases, once you are in Ovid at the "Choose a Database" page, click on the informational button to the left of the database name.

To learn more about evidence based medicine go to the Library's Evidence Based Medicine & Nursing Pathfinder
