The EMF-Portal is a scientific literature database on the effects of electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields on human health and biological systems. This open-access website is operated by the Research Center for Bioelectromagnetic Interaction (femu), part of the Institute of Occupational Medicine, Uniklinik RWTH Aachen, Germany.

The EMF-Portal is worldwide the most comprehensive scientific literature database on biological and health-related effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (frequency range 0-300 GHz) with unrestricted access. As of May 2015, the database included a total of approx. 21,100 scientific paper entries and other relevant publications (e.g. laws, recommendations, and guidelines) that can be found by a sophisticated search tool. Detailed summaries of the biomedical content exist for more than 4,900 articles. The user can get additional information via the extensive directly text-linked glossary (2,900 entries), graphical and tabular overviews on specific research topics, and a database of electromagnetic field emitting sources.

The web portal addresses scientists, politicians, physicians, lawyers, journalists, and the interested public equally. On request, femu provides tailored packages or lists of EMF literature, serving specific needs of international working groups and committees.
