accessing databases@ovid
Accessing Databases@Ovid
  • Linking into a database with a jumpstart

Ovid Medline

  • Opening one or more databases from the selection screen
basic search
Basic Search

The purpose of Basic Search is to provide a reasonable number of highly relevant documents from the most recent part of the database (not an exhaustive search)

  • Add related terms to include plurals and synonyms from the Ovid lexicon
  • Offers most relevant ranked results first
  • Can be limited (to full Text for example)

Use Sorting option or year limit to select recent publications

  • Entering an exact match for a term in the controlled vocabulary; the term will appear and be selected, but other similar subjects will be listed (often a prompt to use “explode”)
  • Entering a synonym for a term, will direct you to the preferred term (use “explode” if it is a category or group of subjects)
  • No match – Frequency based listing If term is neither a direct match nor listed as a "used for" term ("see reference“ or synonym) then:
    • Ovid looks at citation where terms occurs in title or abstract or other fields…
    • Algorithm counts the occurrence of subject headings tied to those citations.
    • The most frequently occurring subject headings are presented to the user as choices.
    • In a frequency based list, one choice may be appropriate, or more than one or a combination of choices, or you may need to choose to “search as a keyword”
  • “Cannot map term to a subject heading” – check spelling, or “search as a keyword” if very new or rare, this is an unusual response for a large database
