AltHealthWatch, a database of complementary, holistic and integrated approaches to health care and wellness, has been purchased by EBSCO Publishing.
With this recent acquisition, EBSCO has now added 10 full text medical databases (in 2001) to its list of available databases.
According to Tim Collins, Vice President and Division General Manager for EBSCO Publishing, the company has seen a tremendous increase in the demand for information covering alternative medicine.
"We have been carefully expanding our offerings to provide full text coverage in subject areas that our customer's have expressed to us as important. Since we first made Alt-HealthWatch available over a year ago, the demand for this type of information has steadily increased."
