Dialog Expands Scientific & Technical Content Collection

Oct 08, 2002

Dialog will be adding or enhancing more than ten scientific and technical files of content, expanding its collection used by information professionals and researchers in scientific and technical libraries in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, engineering, and intellectual property industries. Files to be added or enhanced include: market research from Adis International; evidence-based journals from BMJ Publishing; Catfile Plus; Controlled Trials Register; HealthScout; National Patent Databases from Germany, France, and the United Kingdom (provided in native language with integrated English language machine translations); Regulatory Affairs Journal from PJB Publications; and an expanded version of ToxFile. Negotiations continue with information providers to add more content sources in the future. Additionally, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews currently available on Dialog DataStar will be made available to Dialog users in 2003. The journal from BMJ Publishing and the Controlled Trials Register will round off this collection. Also, the IMS R&D focus file will be enhanced with images, and American Medical Association journals will be launched on Dialog DataStar by the end of 2002.
