New look Ovid

On 27 September 2023 the new look Ovid platform will be implemented at Austin Health.

There is a new look and feel user interface (and some new features), but all functionality remains the same.
Ovid platform databases at Austin Health: MEDLINE, Embase, Emcare, Ovid Nursing, JBI EBP, and PsycINFO.

What has changed?

  • The screen is now “cleaner” and lighter, and some of the boxes and buttons have moved

  • The advanced search box is now bigger so you can see all of your search string

  • It is easier and quicker to see the search limits and filters

  • In basic search, your related search terms are highlighted in teal

  • You can personalise your export settings, including whether to export the documents as word or pdf, and also choose what citation style you want to use
