Changes to Ovid MEDLINE naming

Dear Ovid MEDLINE Customer:


It has been brought to our attention there were inconsistencies in our Ovid MEDLINE naming. Therefore we decided on a slightly different naming convention, that also shortens the long Ovid MEDLINE labels. Secondly some labels had a static end-date like <xxxx to Present> or <xxxx to Daily Update>. We also changed those labels to reflect the actual database update dates. Please note these are just changes to the naming, there are no changes to the content. The changes do not affect results of your Saved Searches or AutoAlerts.

We would also like to remind all customers that database listings on Ovid are fully customizable. There are over 40 combinations of Ovid MEDLINE that may appear in a database list. While all of them remain available, we do recommend to keep things simple for your users, and only show the all-encompassing “Ovid MEDLINE(R) ALL <1946 to July 3, 2018>” database that is on par with PubMed in terms of coverage. The “ALL” database contains all possible components of Ovid MEDLINE. Should any new components be introduced for Ovid MEDLINE, they will be automatically added to “Ovid MEDLINE(R) ALL”.

Ovid Embase audit of MEDLINE records

Dear Ovid Embase Customer:

The volume of citation results in Embase (EMED) on Ovid may increase during the audit of MEDLINE records.

This message announces the delivery of extra MEDLINE content for Embase between April 1stand June 15th, 2017. Elsevier has started their annual audit of the MEDLINE records in Embase, focusing on any gaps in their MEDLINE coverage.

Any MEDLINE backfill will be added to Embase between April 1st and June 15th. Approximately 200,000 records that are currently unique to MEDLINE will be added.

While this is good news in the long run, during the 10 weeks designated for backfill, the volume of alerts may increase by up to 40%. It is important to be prepared for this temporarily higher volume, but rest assured that this is a temporary situation.

All MEDLINE content that can be matched with an existing Embase record will be reflected as an update to the Embase record with a PMID. This will not result in any increase in the volume of alerts.

Customer Support is available if you have any questions at support@ovid.com, and we are eager to provide additional training and assistance as needed.
