MEDLINE is the most important medical database and covers all aspects of clinical medicine. Pubmed is a freely available version of MEDLINE.
Embase covers all aspects of biomedical research with a particular emphasis towards pharmacology, drug research and toxicology. It has a bias towards European journals.

It covers over 1,200 journals with references from 1982 onwards.
