ProQuest and Elsevier Expand Agreement for Medical Publications
ProQuest and Elsevier Health are expanding their relationship for licensing of the Lancet family of medical journals to include 36 additional acclaimed health science titles from Elsevier in ProQuest’s information products. The new three-year agreement enables the full text of these journals to be discovered within the context of libraries’ entire ProQuest collections.
ProQuest has included The Lancet, widely considered to be among the most influential medical journals in the world, in its Health Sciences products since 1995. The Lancet’s long publishing history includes breakthrough research from Lister, Salk, Fleming, Epstein and Barr, and others who have helped hundreds of thousands of clinicians around the world to improve health and save lives. While its research routinely makes headlines around the world, The Lancet is also known for its independent, authoritative voice in global medicine. Now, that full text content will be available along with articles from Elsevier’s spectrum of important medical journals, covering fields from Anesthesiology to Veterinary Medicine.
As part of information products such as ProQuest Medical Library and ProQuest Health and Medical Complete, all of the journals will be accessible to end-users in a research environment that enables them to easily manage, share and work with their discoveries. Backfiles will extend to 2002 and new articles will be available 60 days after their original publication date.
