Four major elements define a medical encyclopaedia: its subject matter, its scope, its method of organization, and its method of production:
Encyclopaedias can be general, containing articles on topics in every field. A medical encyclopedia provides valuable health information, tools for managing your health, and support to those who seek information.
Works of encyclopedic scope aim to convey the important accumulated knowledge for their subject domain, such as an encyclopaedia of medicine.
The articles on subjects in a medical encyclopedia are usually accessed alphabetically by article name or for health topics.
As modern multimedia and the information age have evolved, they have had an ever-increasing effect on the collection, verification, summation, and presentation of information of all kinds. Medical encyclopedias such as Medline Plus, WebMD, and the Merck Manual are examples of new forms of the medical encyclopedias as information retrieval becomes simpler. Some online encyclopedias, such as Medpedia, use wiki software to write the information collaboratively.
