Thomson Gale Offers MLA International Bibliography in Two Formats; Thomson Scientific Adds Doxpub Tools for FDA Compliance

Sep 17, 2004

Thomson Gale, part of The Thomson Corporation, has announced that it is offering customers two ways to access the Modern Language Association (MLA) International Bibliography, for one price. Thomson Scientific has launched a new online store that provides FDA-regulated organizations with tools to comply with Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Subscribers to MLA through Thomson Gale who also have a subscription to the publisher's Literature Resource Center can now access the bibliography electronically in two formats - as a standalone on InfoTrac and directly within Literature Resource Center. To help potential customers evaluate the database, MLA has offered a special two-month trial period.

Through Thomson Gale's MLA on InfoTrac, and within Literature Resource Center with MLA, users can access the Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature, allowing them to look up literary terms for quick reference. They also can use the Gale Literary Index to search for citations from literary references from Thomson Gale, Charles Scribner's Sons, St. James Press, and Twayne Publishers. The Gale Literary Index combines and cross-references author names and titles in one source, in an effort to help libraries get more use out of their electronic and print resources.

Subscribers to the MLA International Bibliography and Literature Resource Center can conduct simultaneous searches with integrated results, accessing MLA bibliographic citations from 1963 to present, as well as author biographies, critical essays, and journal articles. The Modern Language Association's 2004 data enhancements have been implemented in both options. These new features include: Subject Author Names and Works; Peer Reviewed Field; Table of Contents Field; and Indexing Electronic Books and Online Bibliographies.

Thomson Scientific has launched a new online store that is designed to provide FDA-regulated organizations with the tools they need to achieve and maintain compliance with Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The online store is in partnership with Doxpub, Inc., a specialty publisher of documents for U.S. FDA compliance. Techstreet, a Thomson Scientific business unit, will manage Doxpub's online store, including sales, distribution, order fulfillment, and customer service.

Doxpub publishes documents and templates that are used by organizations in the food, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, cosmetic, and animal feed/drug industries to achieve compliance with current Good Laboratory, Clinical, and Manufacturing Practices; collectively referred to as cGxP or GxP. Doxpub's document collection includes standard operating procedures, validation protocols, lab protocols, forms, log sheets, policies, manuals, and more.

The new online store offers customers a choice of purchasing single-copies for immediate download or a multi-user online subscription to a custom set of standards and GxP templates. All content is continually updated to reflect current industry practices and new publications are added on a regular basis.
