Ovid Adds Social Policy Database

Ovid Technologies ( announced the exclusive availability of the Social Policy and Practice bibliographic database on the SilverPlatter platform. The database comprises more than 200,000 bibliographic records and abstracts referencing materials held by four U.K.-based organizations: Centre for Policy on Ageing, Greater London Authority, IDOX, and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE). Ovid worked closely with the four information sources to produce the database as part of Ovid's Partner Publishing program. The program provides database design and development services to bring important bibliographic resources to market.

A significant number of references in the database are "gray" literature—semi-published reports, surveys, and statistics—providing access to difficult-to-obtain resources and into many areas frequently overlooked by other social science sources. The database includes records dating from 1981 with an average of 20,000 new records added annually.

Ovid is an operating company of Wolters Kluwer Health (WK Health), a division of Wolters Kluwer nv, a multinational publisher and information services company. SilverPlatter was acquired by Wolters Kluwer in the spring of 2001 and merged with Ovid, which continues to support the SilverPlatter products and services.
