Ovid Technologies, a provider of electronic medical, scientific, and social sciences information solutions, has announced the exclusive availability of the Social Policy and Practice bibliographic database on the SilverPlatter platform. Social Policy and Practice is a tool for academics, researchers, and policy-makers working within human resources, public safety, social services, social administration, economic and social development, social work, social work education, and care management. The database provides evidence-based social research in such topics as public and social policy, public health, social care, mental, and community health, among others. The Social Policy and Practice database is comprised of bibliographic records and abstracts referencing materials held by four UK-based organizations; Centre for Policy on Ageing, Greater London Authority, IDOX, and the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE). A number of references are ‘grey' literature, such as semi-published reports, surveys, and statistics.
