CBT. Behavior/Behaviour Therap*
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFS, ME, Post-viral fatigue syndrome*
Limits: Adults, Humans, 1990-2011
Study design: Trial, randomised controlled trial, systematic review, observational study.

  • Medline 
Medline 
Why use it?
Good coverage of wide range of clinical medical topics
One of the longest periods of coverage: from 1966, with over 15million records 
Very strong and widely recognised controlled thesaurus of MeSH (Medline Subject Headings) for good relevancy of results. Transparent navigation of MeSH terms allows searcher to ‘see inside’ the organisation of the database
Ovid interface has excellent search refining tools, and several save options including auto-alert
Bear in mind...
Long indexing delay: 3 to 6 months for complete records (Pre-medline helps to overcome this)
Very large: over 11 million records, so requires sifting through results
Of the biomedical, science and social science databases one of the weaker ones for psychiatry and psychology
Journal coverage weighted toward North American titles
Does not usually index publications other than journal articles
Dozier, M (2011)
  • EMBASE
EMBASE

Why use it?
Good coverage of wide range of clinical medical topics, but particularly strong in pharmacology and psychiatry when compared with Medline.
Good European journal coverage
Well structured controlled thesaurus (Emtree) for good relevancy of results
In addition to journal articles, covers meetings, conferences and symposia
Shorter Indexing delay than Medline: 4 to 8 weeks
BUT

Coverage: 1980 to present
  • PsycINFO Why use it?
PsycINFO Why use it?
Coverage back to 1887
Well structured controlled thesaurus
Indexes more than just journal articles: dissertations and books, including book chapters
Good for all aspects of mental health
Good for social, behavioural and psychological aspects of health and illness
BUT
Comparatively small database: approximately 1.5 million records
  • AMED (Allied and Alternative Medicine) 
AMED (Allied and Alternative Medicine) 
Why use it?
Subjects covered include acupuncture, homeopathy, palliative care, Chinese medicine, hospice care, physiotherapy, chiropractic, hypnosis, podiatry, herbalism, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, holistic treatments and osteopathy.
Controlled thesaurus terms (based on MeSH) are used
BUT
Updated quarterly
Not all subjects have been covered since 1985: palliative care is since 1997, speech and language therapy since 1999. 
Coverage: 1985 to present
Number of journals indexed: nearly 600 (mostly European journals)

Note the dates of the last search for each database AND the period searched;
