How to search in Embase?
Embase can be searched using free text and/or with Emtree terms, the keywords in the Embase thesaurus. These Emtree terms can be found via Browse > Emtree. You can also look at the hierarchical structure of the keywords there. All underlying terms are automatically included (Explosion), but you can also switch off this option in Advanced Search.
Embase uses single not double quotation marks in PubMed/MEDLINE to search for an exact word or word combinations, e.g. ‘cardiovascular disease’.
