Biosis Announces Additions to Life Science Network


Biosis, sponsor of the online end-user service, the Life Science Network, has added AIDSLINE and AIDS Abstracts to the service.

The service provides low-cost access to over 80 life science and related databases through an easy-to-understand menu system, so no knowledge of traditional online searching methods is required.

AIDSLINE, produced by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), contains more than 45,000 records with abstracts dating from 1980 to the present. This database supplies a broad perspective of published research on AIDS and is derived from the NLM's MEDLINE database, supplemented with citations from it CANCERLIT and HEALTH databases. AIDSLINE also includes meeting abstracts from the International Conferences on AIDS. Topics covered in AIDSLINE include the biomedical, social, clinical and research aspects of AIDS as well as health policy issues.

AIDS Abstracts from the Bureau of Hygiene and Tropical Diseases contains approximately 14,000 citations dating from 1983 to the present. This database focuses on public health and medical aspects of AIDS, including treatment, control, transmission, health education and social aspects of the disease. Journal, books, theses and reports are used as sources for this database, which also contains citations drawn from the printed publications Abstracts on Hygiene and Communicable Disease and Current AIDS Literature.

Through the Life Science Network, researchers can search either of these databases directly and view citations or they can "scan" a group of subject-related databases as a cost effective means of finding those with relevant information on their topic. …
