EBSCO Acquires Chemical Hazard Resource—Expert Publishing

EBSCO Publishing ( has acquired Expert Publishing (ExPub;, a provider of up-to-date, decision-support chemical information for the global environmental health & safety (EH&S) community. ExPub databases provide access to millions of documents containing comprehensive human and/or environmental hazard data needed to manage the impact of chemicals in the workplace or on the environment. ExPub databases offer EBSCO a variety of options for enhancing existing databases and creating new resources, as well as offerings that are complementary to current EBSCOhost databases.

The global implications of recent changes in European chemical regulations, legislative and regulatory efforts in Congress to reform American chemical regulatory policies, and consumer fears about chemicals in consumer products-as evidenced by the recent BPA scare-emphasize the importance of having access to comprehensive and authoritative information on the potential hazards of chemicals.

ExPub provides more than 120 databases containing millions of documents from government and licensed sources covering more than 400,000 unique substances and accessible via 2.25 million chemical names and synonyms. Databases include ChemEXPERT, ReproEXPERT, ListEXPERT, DrugEXPERT, and MSDSonline.

Companies and agencies that use or regulate chemicals are able to access the latest, up-to-date documents on chemical hazards and toxicology. ExPub databases are designed for organizations that need to research and understand the human health hazards associated with chronic and acute exposures to chemicals in the workplace and in the environment. The databases can also be used by those responsible for developing chemical regulatory and trade policies and controls. In addition, the resources are of value to organizations tasked with homeland and facilities security and border control.
