Ovid Nursing Database Reload Scheduled – May 2018


Ovid Nursing Database Reload Scheduled

Dear Ovid Nursing Database Customer:

The Ovid Nursing Database is being reloaded for the annual update of the MEDLINE input. We expect the reload to go live on May 8th, 2018. Alerts will be run on Monday, May 7th 2018 prior to the reload.

In addition, Ovid has made the following changes:

Traditionally, Author information displayed before Title and Source. However, as the Author detail has increased over the years, we will now display Title and Source information above the Author detail. You’ll also see this change in the display order for complete references when you export or download records from the Ovid Nursing Database.

3 New Fields

•   Organism Supplementary Concept (OS)
•   Organism Supplementary Concept Word (OX)
•   PubMed Central Release (PQ)

1 Changed Field
•   Publication Status (PQ) is now Publication Status (PP) to match the MEDLINE

1 Deleted Field
•   Creation Date (CD)

You can access the full Ovid Nursing Database using this durable, stable jumpstart:
