How often is the journal content on ClinicalKey updated?

Journal articles are added to ClinicalKey's database as new issues are published, and generally available 2 to 3 weeks after the print version is published. Articles in press (ePub Ahead of Print) can be accessed prior to publishing of the journal issue.

What is the availability of book editions on ClinicalKey?

You can access most books on ClinicalKey the same day they are published in print. A book may occasionally require additional work in order to convert it to ClinicalKey's electronic format. In this case, the book should be available within 8 weeks. A book will generally remain available on ClinicalKey until its new edition is available on the site. We may sometimes replace a book with a new title based on user feedback or usage statistics of the book.

How does ClinicalKey deliver relevant search results?

ClinicalKey uses 2 unique Elsevier technologies to provide the most relevant answers to physicians' queries:

  • ClinicalKey ensures its users get the most relevant content by tagging each paragraph using our proprietary medical taxonomy, EMMeT (Elsevier Merged Medical Taxonomy), to create Elsevier Smart Content.
  • ClinicalKey is exclusively designed to align with physician workflows so it delivers answers that are more relevant than those provided by conventional clinical search engines.

What is Smart Content?

Smart content ensures ClinicalKey adapts to meet physicians' specific needs. It is created when searchable content is mapped to a taxonomy classifying the meaning of terms in the content. ClinicalKey creates clinical Smart Content by mapping searchable journal, book, image, and video content to Elsevier's proprietary taxonomy, EMMeT. EMMeT refines and combines other broad taxonomies to create the single most clinically useful taxonomy. It allows ClinicalKey to understand the meaning of searchable content so you can discover related content missed by keyword searches on conventional clinical search engines.

Also, because ClinicalKey uniquely understands physicians' searches, it can autosuggest a broad range of additional terms to help them find the most relevant answers faster. EMMeT is constantly evolving to ensure ClinicalKey consistently identifies the most relevant answers.

How does ClinicalKey align with physician workflows?

ClinicalKey structures information so that it aligns with doctors' workflows rather than disrupting them. Whether they are treating and diagnosing patients, staying current in their field, or sharing information with colleagues, ClinicalKey does the following:

  • ClinicalKey provides access to the content they need most.
  • ClinicalKey allows them to filter search results by clinically meaningful subcategories (content type, specialty, disease, and more).
  • Specialty-specific tools enable physicians to quickly go from topic overview to in-depth specialty information to meet clinical challenges.
  • Workflow alignment extends to the design of ClinicalKey's user interface, making the most relevant tools immediately accessible.
  • Physicians can personalize ClinicalKey for greater workflow alignment, ensuring the most relevant results and cutting search time even further.
    • - Saved searches save physicians time.
    • - Personalized alerts keep physicians current when new information is available.
