a variety of biomedical topics were compared. The
searches were conducted on DIALOG, using the
OneSearch option to determine the total number of
records for a one-year timespan. Table 2 provides the
results.
The comparisons clearly demonstrate that the three
databases must be searched for truly complete
literature retrieval. For most searches, there was at
least 30% unique records retrieved.
Conclusion
BIOSIS Previews
is complementary to Medline and
EMBASE for medical and biomedical literature
searches. BIOSIS Previews is an invaluable adjunct
to any life science database for all life science
researchers, including those in medicine.
