New Informahealthcare.com Combines Journals and Books
Informa Healthcare has launched a new site that combines its full journal archive with recently published book content onto the informahealthcare.com web platform. The new service delivers approximately 170 journals and 600 online books. The combination of books and journals allows users to search across both products to find key data on one platform-saving researchers time and helping site administrators track usage more effectively.
The redesigned site offers improved navigation and optimizes functionality. Enhancements include the following:
- Deeper content in special therapeutic areas including cardiology, dermatology, neurology, pharmaceutical science, respiratory medicine, toxicology, and urology
- Option to save searches to help manage advanced research results
- Improved navigation options to highlight most popular articles and chapters, share journal or book developments, and connect related content or authors to improve and expand research
- More links to key resources such as audio or video content, social networking pages, users guides, and the Informa Healthcare blog
The new platform also allows librarians, information officers, or department heads to evaluate usage and traffic on the site to ensure their patrons or staff are regularly accessing the data and help quantify subscription investments. As administrators, customers can access COUNTER-compliant usage reports, manage IP ranges, and view general account details. Users can also receive new data published online through free alerts services-including eTOC alerts, early online article alerts, or RSS feeds to share any research or developments with peers.
Informahealthcare.com covers all aspects of healthcare-including drug discovery and development, medical technology, bioscience, clinical medicine and toxicology-offering access to specialized research and insight from an international body of experts. The site now offers more than 3 million pages of research and approximately 16,000 new book chapters. Content will continue to increase as new issues and books are added.
