Ovid Expands Portfolio of Archive Content with BIOSIS Archive and Zoological Record Archive

Human Biology and Animal Sciences Databases Now Available

Ovid Technologies, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health and a global leader in electronic medical, scientific, and academic information research solutions, is pleased to announce the availability of the BIOSIS Archive and Zoological Record Archive databases. 

“Ovid is focused on delivering depth and breadth of content, including highly sought after archival information, to our customers,” said Karen Abramson, President & CEO of Ovid. “With the advantages of digital archives, researchers are increasingly looking to historical information, in addition to current resources, for the most comprehensive search and discovery experience.”

BIOSIS Archive includes approximately 3.5 million bibliographic records digitized from 49 print volumes of Biological Abstracts that were printed between 1926 and 1968. Covering all aspects of the biological sciences, it includes pioneering work from Nobel Laureates and includes original as well as extended abstracts featuring information unavailable at the original time of writing, such as organism name, geographic area, and chemical name. Translations of non-English source material are also included.

Zoological Record Archive comprises 1.5 million indexed and searchable bibliographic records of historical data published in print from 1864-1977. Records cover living, extinct, and fossil species and include every animal name and description included in the print volumes (1-106). Many renowned early pioneers in zoology, including Charles Darwin and Albert Gunther, contributed to these early volumes, and they are included in this product.

BIOSIS Archive and Zoological Archive are produced by Thomson Scientific, part of the Thomson Corporation.

Other archive products offered by Ovid include the LWW Journal Legacy Archive, with nearly 1 million journal articles in medicine and nursing; Inspec Archive, comprised of bibliographic records in engineering and physics; the veterinary and agricultural sciences database, CAB Abstracts Archive; and Global Health Archive, with bibliographic information in public health.
