Elsevier Provides Free Access To Medical Information In The Philippines In Support Of Disaster Relief Efforts

PHILADELPHIA, November 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Disaster relief workers and healthcare professionals in the Philippines can access Elsevier medical content through ClinicalKey and NLM Emergency Access Initiative

To support the people of the Philippines in the aftermath of typhoon Haiyan, Elsevier will provide free access to its primary online clinical information and reference tool, ClinicalKey, to all IPs originating from the country for 60 days.

In addition, Elsevier is participating in the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) providing access to content from multiple publishers, including nearly 100 Elsevier journals, during the four-week free access period through December 8, 2013.

A collaborative partnership between the NLM and participating publishers, the EAI provides free access to full-text articles from over 650 biomedical serial titles and over 4,000 reference books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries affected by disasters. The EAI serves as a temporary collection replacement and/or supplement for libraries affected by disasters that need to continue to serve medical staff and affiliated users. It is also intended for medical personnel responding to the specified disaster. For further details visit: http://eai.nlm.nih.gov.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of the Philippines, especially to families who have been impacted by the disaster," said Gerrit Bos, Elsevier's Managing Director for the Health Sciences Division in Asia Pacific. "Situations like these require communities to band together to provide much-needed resources. As a provider of health, medical and patient care information, Elsevier is opening up the largest single reference site for clinical information, ClinicalKey, to frontline aid and medical workers to support their relief efforts during this challenging time."

ClinicalKey provides evidence-based clinical answers drawn from the single largest body of clinical content available including Medline, 500+ journals, 100+ books, drug information, guidelines, and patient education. Its clinically relevant search is powered by Elsevier's Smart Content, tagged with EMMeT (Elsevier Merged Medical Taxonomy), which enables ClinicalKey to understand clinical terms and thus discover medical content that is the most relevant, plus find related content that would be missed by other search engines.
