Falvey Memorial Library recently added Ovid Emcare to its database collection. Emcare is scholarly nursing and allied health database that largely encompasses evidence-based care clinical content.
It contains abstracts and indexing from a large variety of peer-reviewed journals and is fully integrated with Falvey’s Ovid full-text journal collection, allowing users to go beyond citation gathering to gain full-text PDFs when available.
One of the more unique features about Emcare is that it provides international journal coverage not found in other nursing and healthcare-related databases.
Other notable features include:
- Access to over 3,700 international indexed peer-reviewed journals
- Over 5 million records dating back to 1995
- Ability to limit search results to systematic reviews, clinical trials, and more
- Natural language searching making it easier for search queries
Whether you are a seasoned nursing researcher, or an undergraduate nursing student, Ovid Emcare can help you dig deeper in your research to find the best evidence-based literature on a variety of nursing topics.
