EBSCO Discovery Service Boosts STM Content With IGI Global Agreement

IGI Global journals and reference books will be searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). An agreement between EBSCO Publishing and IGI Global will allow metadata for 131 journals and more than 1,500 reference books to be added to the Base Index of EDS.

IGI Global is an international publishing company specializing in scholarly research publications and databases covering all aspects of information science technology utilization and management. The metadata from IGI Global will greatly expand the international STM resources available to EDS users.

Metadata that will be available via EDS include IGI Global’s peer reviewed journals—providing a focus on information/computer science & technology applied to business and public administration, engineering, education, medicine and healthcare and social sciences. The agreement also includes their diverse collection of reference books. The reference books will supply cutting-edge research in information science, business science, medical information science, and engineering science from authors and editors from all over the world.

IGI Global joins a long list of publishers and other content partners who are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. EBSCO Discovery Service creates a unified, customized index of an institution’s information resources, and an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of that content from a single search box—searching made even more powerful because of the quality of metadata and depth and breadth of coverage.
