Australasian Medical Index

Also known as AMI, Informit AMI

Australasian Medical Index (AMI), produced by the National Library of Australia, is a bibliographic database that indexes and abstracts articles from over 160 Australian health and medical serials, most of which are not indexed for MEDLINE, on all aspects of health and medicine. Source documents include journals, conference proceedings, government reports, selected monographs and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) session reports. While the AMI database does not contain Australian records from the MEDLINE database (1966+) we have been indexing some key Australian journals since 2001 which are also covered in MEDLINE. Subject coverage includes all aspects of health and medicine, with an emphasis on clinical medicine and paraprofessional fields. Citations for articles always include an abstract. Author abstracts are used when they appear in the original, otherwise the abstract is supplied by the indexer. AMI includes some material from the subsets of NHMRC and Aboriginal health records.
