Ovid Expands Electronic Content

Ovid (http://www.ovid.com), a Wolters Kluwer business, announced that it is working with global publishers to license new humanities, arts, social science, and engineering content. The new content will be made available on Ovid's Gateway and SilverPlatter platforms.

Ovid is adding 18 journals from Intellect, a U.K.-based publisher specializing in film, art, language, television, and other creative arts; 15 geosciences and biology journals from the National Resource Council of Canada (NRC) Press; and 30 journals from GeoScience World (GSW), a nonprofit geosciences consortium. On Ovid, GSW articles will be available outside the U.S. and Canada. Full-text articles can be accessed via a relevant, complementary database, also hosted on Ovid, where all the titles are fully indexed, providing users with seamless access.

New bibliographic databases include RIPM, a bilingual (French/English) database from Répertoire International de la Presse Musicale; PsycCRITIQUES, a collection of book reviews from the American Psychological Association; and EMBiology, a new bioscience database from Elsevier offered exclusively by Ovid. New archive databases include CAB Abstracts Archive (journal abstracts in horticulture, forestry, and nutrition from the early to mid 20th century) and Inspec Archive, which contains science abstracts from the Institute of Electrical Engineers journals dating from 1898 to 1972.

In addition, nearly 40 academic titles will be added to Books@Ovid, Ovid's e-book interface. These include more than 20 dictionaries and engineering textbooks from McGraw-Hill and 15 titles in nutrition and food from Woodhead Publishing.
