OBJECTIVES: The aim of this investigation was to explore the effectiveness of search strategies developed to identify trials of specific complementary therapies in a range of clinical conditions. DESIGN: All primary studies included in a series of systematic reviews were identified. An analysis of the original source of the study and search term(s) by means of which the study had originally been retrieved was carried out. Each study was then searched for in each of 6 databases (AMED, Cochrane CENTRAL, MEDLINE/PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, PsycINFO).

In complementary and alternative medicine, a number of basic problems exist for people who search for research-based information, one of which is the way that articles are indexed within the major databases. An exploration of the indexing of acupuncture studies was conducted as part of a review of research on the effectiveness of specific complementary therapies in cancer. Examination of several thesauri demonstrated variability in the terminology used for acupuncture and acupuncture-related therapies. Search strategies reported in published reviews also varied.

BACKGROUND: Literature searches for articles on Ayurveda provide special challenges, since many of the Indian journals in which such articles appear are not indexed by current medical databases such as PubMed and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. AIM: The aim of this study was to develop a comprehensive search strategy on Ayurveda topics and to map the existing databases containing Ayurveda journal publications. METHODS: We have developed a literature search procedure that can recover the great majority of articles on any given topic associated with Ayurveda.
