M2 PHARMA-February 27, 2018-Elsevier in collaboration with Beijing University of Chinese Medicine


Elsevier, the global information analytics business specialising in science and health, is collaborating with Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM).

It was reported yesterday that the collaboration is aimed at creating a new taxonomy for traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in Embase, Elsevier's comprehensive biomedical literature database.

During the six-month collaboration, BUCM, one of the first institutions of higher learning on TCM, will review terms and help build a detailed, robust taxonomy to cover all TCM data in Embase. The taxonomy is intended to enrich and improve the present content in Embase; making it easily discoverable to users seeking knowledge from clinical practices for modern biomedical sciences. On completion, it is intended that Embase will contain the most comprehensive taxonomy for TCM available.
