We have a new design for searching and browsing Ovid, as the first step in a year-long program of enhancements and developments.

We've met with many customers over the past year, and created a new Ovid design with a modern, simple look with more space and a color scheme created to aid fast and confident navigation.

Key features for this update include:

Export Enhancements

We are pleased to announce an update to Ovid’s Export functionality which will make it easier for users to take search results and citations into the next phase of their literature review workflow.

Ovid users can now personalize their export settings and save them to their Personal Account as a reusable template. Users may select between Microsoft Word (.doc) or PDF as the output format and specify the citation style for the bibliographic metadata (e.g. MLA, APA). It's easy to select which fields to include in the export and specify the order of field display. These export customizations can also be saved for future use.

Basic Search

We've streamlined the experience but kept the essence of the search experience largely the same – same great search, better design.

Search Terms highlight color

It'll be much easier to scan search results for relevant information thanks to the new highlight color (teal), for related terms in Basic Search.

Advanced Search

Other improvements include a larger Advanced Search box and a new header and footer.

Searching Limits and Filters improvements

Easier and quicker access to selecting searching limits and filters, improvements in refining search process and workflow.
