“In a commitment to support the research needs of its global medical community, Wolters Kluwer Health today announced the release of OvidOpenAccess, a new search discovery feature that integrates thousands of Open Access (OA) resources within the OvidSP platform. Now OvidSP users can conduct a single search query to uncover relevant answers to important medical questions across subscribed and OA content.  Resources provided through OvidOpenAccess includes more than 200 journals from Medknow, a leading, global Open Access publisher and part of Wolters Kluwer Health, and thousands of OA articles available in PMC (formerly known as PubMed Central), the digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature from the US National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NLM). OvidOpenAccess is value-added content for all institutional subscribers of the OvidSP platform, the world’s leading medical research platform.  With OvidOpenAccess, OA content is listed in a separate, easily identifiable results widget alongside the main Search Results pane in OvidSP Basic Search. Users can conduct post search tasks, such as print, save, and export to a project or project folder in the My Projects function. Currently, OvidOpenAccess includes a growing list of more than 70,000 full text articles from Medknow’s clinical and research journals. Medknow journals are published on behalf of nearly 160 professional healthcare societies and associations and span a wide range of medical and healthcare disciplines, including nursing pharmacology, and alternative medicine. In addition, users have access, through the PMC Open Access Subset, to bibliographic citations of articles published in more than 1,000 unembargoed journals.  The OvidSP medical research platform delivers a solution of aggregated premium content from more than 150 information producers, and rich search functionality and tools to quickly find and manage search results. Used by more than 12,500 institutions globally, OvidSP helps physicians, clinicians, students, researchers, and librarians to make important decisions to improve patient care, enhance ongoing research, and fuel new discoveries.”
