Dialog Adds Content; The Lancet Returns

Dialog (, provider of online information services for professional searchers, has added new content to its Dialog and DataStar platforms, significantly enhancing its medical and business information resources. Dialog, LLC, part of the ProQuest ( family of brands, is headquartered in Morrisville, N.C., with offices in Sunnyvale, Calif., and London.

Among the new content sources is The Lancet, a leading independent general medical journal. Its publishing history includes reports on numerous medical breakthroughs since 1823, including shell shock therapy, penicillin, and birth defects plus recent medical advancements such as the identification of coronavirus as a possible cause of SARS. Its international focus and coverage of all aspects of human health make it a key gateway for medical information research. Lancet Infectious Diseases, Lancet Oncology, and Lancet Neurology will also be available through Dialog and DataStar. The content has a 2-month embargo from its appearance in hard copy. (Note: The Lancet [File 457/LANC] was removed from Dialog and DataStar in 2002. The Lancet was then selectively indexed by other databases. The Lancet was available from ProQuest, which acquired Dialog from Thomson Reuters in 2008.)

Additionally, more than 300 new sources have been added to ABI/INFORM, a source for authoritative business information, and 400 new sources have been added to Periodical Abstracts Plus, which provides cover-to-cover indexing and abstracting of articles from more than 1,800 general-reference publications.

These content additions are part of an initiative of Dialog and ProQuest to make ProQuest's expansive selection of authoritative, full-text content more widely available to Dialog's traditional markets. The new initiative enriches the ProQuest resources available through the Dialog and DataStar platforms and also makes complementary ProQuest products on their traditional ProQuest platforms available through Dialog sales channels.
