EBSCO and Wolters Kluwer Health, a provider of information, business intelligence and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare industry, have come to an agreement allowing metadata from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW) journals on the Ovid institutional research platform to be added to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). This agreement extends the Wolters Kluwer Health journal portfolio on EDS with its Medknow open access medical journals currently accessible to users.
EDS users will now have the ability to search the abstract and full reference (metadata) details of Wolters Kluwer Health's LWW portfolio of 280 medical, nursing, and allied health journals.
EBSCO also announced the intent to collaborate with the American College of Physicians (ACP) around evidence-based expertise. If formalized, the multi-year collaboration will bring thousands of American College of Physician images, figures and tables to EBSCO's evidence-based clinical resources such as DynaMed. Under the terms of the intended collaboration, EBSCO would provide ACP access to DynaMed's evidence-based clinical summaries and to the systematic literature surveillance that DynaMed relies on.
DynaMed will make available to ACP its systematic literature surveillance and guideline updates, and ACP may incorporate some of DynaMed's content into some educational resources.
