Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews (EBMR) Database Reload

On May 1st, we reloaded the Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews (EBMR) database on OvidSP due to specific changes for the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.
Included in this reload are the following new fields, changed fields and updates:
New fields:
  • Language (LG)
Changed fields:
  • Study Design (SD); added the following values:
    • Control Before-After (CBA)
    • Interrupted Time Series (ITS)
Additional updates:
  • MeSH terms have been checked and updated based on the current 2014 thesaurus.
  • Journal names have been converted to NLM journal authority list format (e.g. “Lancet Neurol” converted to “Lancet neurology”). Searchers should update any saved searches or search alerts using this field. For an NLM list of journal abbreviations, please visit NLM FAQ: Finding NLM Serials Data and MEDLINE Indexed Journals.
  • Additional records from PubMed® have been added due to changes made by Wiley in their search filter. As a result, users may see older records in their searches and alerts.
Please note, there was no unscheduled run of AutoAlerts prior to the reload going live. For further information, please refer to the Database Guides.
Should you have any questions during this time, please contact us at support@ovid.com.
