EBSCO Announces New Content Availability. (Internet Today)

Article excerpt

EBSCO Publishing has announced the integration of additional back years of BIOSIS' Biological Abstracts (BA) database, the full text of the American Medical Association Collection database, and INSPEC through its EBSCOhost service. EBSCO has also announced that it now offers the Kiplinger Finance & Forecasts (KFF) database to corporations and public libraries through an agreement with The Kiplinger Washington Editors, Inc.

BA, which indexes articles from more than 4,000 international life sciences serials, is now available back to 1980 via EBSCOhost. EBSCOhost previously held BA records back to 1994. By adding 14 years of coverage, EBSCOhost has tripled the number of BA records its users can access.

"Current studies build on the findings of previous ones, so it's important to understand how they all fit together. By adding back years to the Biological Abstracts data file, EBSCO provides its users with more access to critical life sciences research. We are pleased that an industry leader like EBSCO sees the value of extending its Biological Abstracts offerings."
