ClinicalKey provides current information to clinical health care providers via an aggregated content service. It provides full-text access to over 500 Elsevier journals and 1,000 e-books. Additionally, it includes clinical overviews, clinical trials, drug monographs, clinical guidelines, patient education handouts, images & multimedia, procedure videos, clinical calculators, and indexing and abstracts from the National Library of Medicine’s MEDLINE database. The latter consists of journal citations and abstracts for published health sciences journal literature. ClinicalKey is continuously updated with the most current clinical information and editions, and MEDLINE citations are updated every week.


Context-sensitive help in searching is provided to the user during the actual search experience.  There is a ClinicalKey resource center at which provides additional information.
