    Our Global Literature Office conducts regular PV monitoring of the published literature using Embase and Medline. Is this considered adequate to identify cases from the UK? If not what other sources of journals have people used to ensure local literature searching for the UK is covered. Currently I am at a loss to identify any journals not covered by Medline and/or Embase. I would welcome any advice

    The British Library can be contacted for a list of journals. You will need to provide them with the therapy area(s) that you require the journals for. They use the directory from Ulrichsweb.


    From experience Embase and Medline are sufficient to cover literature journals from the UK and therefore additional local monitoring on top of the global screening may not be required for the UK. However there could be some local journals specific to some therapy areas.
