Core Biomedical Databases
Ovid MEDLINE offers a different interface to access MEDLINE content. Advantages to Ovid include better search building capacity and more options when constructing complicated searches.
Embase lives on the Ovid platform and is good for those interested in topics outside of mainstream medicine and outside of the United States. EMBASE is also particularly good for pharmacology searches, includes conference papers (unlike MEDLINE), and has its own controlled vocabulary system called Emtree.
Scopus offers peer-reviewed abstracts and citations in science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities. It's particularly good for interdisciplinary topics, grey literature, investigating citation trends, and discerning research impact.
While certainly a useful tool and a good place to begin scientific inquiry, you shouldn't rely solely on Google Scholar. The scope of materials included is unknown and you're unable to download batches of citations for import into EndNote.
