With Dialog Choice, graduate schools, universities, and other academic institutions can provide their faculty, students, and researchers with direct, desktop access to databases of scientific, technical, and medical research, as well as news, business intelligence, and other current awareness content, aggregated by Dialog from information publishers. Ninety-two databases of research, business intelligence, and news content are available for annual subscriptions through the Dialog Choice plan. The available content ranges from intellectual property research (such as patent records from major markets around the world) to abstracts of scholarly research published in peered-review journals.
Academic institutions opting for Dialog Choice fixed annual subscriptions may provide unlimited access to the entire institution or to specific users within selected departments or units.
