NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ovid, part of Wolters Kluwer Health and a global leader in the development and delivery of customizable research information solutions for the medical, scientific and academic markets, is pleased to announce the release of OvidEspanol, a Spanish-language search portal that allows healthcare practitioners, clinicians, students, and researchers to search, browse, and manage search results of core Spanish-language medical content.
"We're excited to announce the most recent addition to our portfolio of local-language search offerings with OvidEspanol," said Karen Abramson, President & CEO of Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research. "OvidEspanol offers a robust solution for Spanish-speaking researchers, medical students, and healthcare practitioners who prefer to search in their native language. Information producers of original Spanish-language content, as well as English medical content translated into Spanish, now have an easy-to-use search solution to bring their content to a broader user base."
Based on the same platform functionality as Ovid's other local-language search portals, including OvidFrancais and OvidChinese, OvidEspanol is accessible anytime, anywhere a user has internet access. They can search and browse content by subject area, and perform other research tasks including:
- Enter search terms in Spanish
- Refine book searches by specific criteria
- Search multiple resources simultaneously
- Access a growing list of premium resources
- Navigate between the table of contents, chapters, and sections
- Email or export images from the image gallery to PowerPoint
- Capture key content by exporting citations to PDF
For its initial release, OvidEspanol offers a selection of translated core medical titles from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, including well-known titles in diabetes, psychiatry, gynecology, and general medicine, among other medical subject areas.
Ovid is already well-established within the research community and known around the world for OvidSP, the industry-leading English-language online research platform that offers unique tools and features designed to maximize search precision and efficiency, and simplify and speed analysis and workflow — all in a simple, integrated and easy-to-use system. Ovid introduced its first local-language portal, OvidFrancais, in 2010, and announced OvidChinese last month. Upcoming local-language portals include Arabic.
