Electronic Medical and Human Nutrition Full Text Resources Now Accessible via OvidSP
New York, NY (December 3, 2012) – Wolters Kluwer Health today announced its renewed commitment to the Nestlé Foundation’s enLINK initiative, which supports the research of healthcare professionals in low-income countries to address malnutrition. In 2004, the Foundation and Ovid, part of Wolters Kluwer Health and a global provider of medical and scientific resources, collaborated to develop the enLINK electronic library, which provides students, researchers, and healthcare workers with easy access to important electronic medical and nutrition resources. With this renewed partnership, resources will be more readily accessible through OvidSP, Ovid’s medical research platform.
“Investing in any activity that promotes increased access to information has a tremendous impact; and as an organization dedicated to reducing problems of nutrition all over the world, the Nestlé Foundation initially chose Ovid to develop enLINK because of its comprehensive medical content and sophisticated technology,” commented Prof. Dr. Paolo M. Suter, the Nestle Foundation. “The resources Ovid has provided over the past eight years have been instrumental to many human nutrition research programs in the low-income countries we serve, and we’re pleased to continue our partnership with Ovid and enhance the service by offering streamlined access to the content via the OvidSP solution.”
"We’re delighted to continue our support for the Nestle Foundation’s enLINK initiative and are committed to providing important access to medical journal resources that researchers can use to educate, diagnose, and treat problems of nutrition and nutrition deficiencies,” said Jayne Marks, Vice President, Publishing at Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research. “Online access to medical resources is particularly critical for researchers and practitioners in low-income nations and we’re proud to provide our OvidSP solution of premium medical journals to support the Foundation’s efforts at correcting nutritional imbalances.”
enLINK users will have access via OvidSP to ejournal and book content to support a variety of research topics, including clinical nutrition and practice; maternal and child nutrition; breastfeeding and complementary feeding; macro- and micro-nutrient deficiencies and imbalances; interactions between infection and nutrition; and nutrition education and health promotion. Plus, users can take advantage of OvidSP’s search, alerting, and results management tools to stay current on their research activity.
