Dialog, a Thomson business and a provider of online-based information services and integrated information solutions, says it will be adding or enhancing more than 10 scientific and technical files of content in its collection.

New files to be added or enhanced include market research from Adis
International, evidence-based journals from BMJ Publishing, Catfile Plus, Controlled Trials Register, HealthScout, National Patent Databases from Europe, Regulatory Affairs Journal from PJB Publications and an expanded version of ToxFile. Negotiations continue with information providers to add more content sources in the future, Dialog says.

Additionally, The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews currently
available on Dialog DataStar will be made available to users in 2003,
providing access to one of the most important sources in evidence-based medicine. The journal from BMJ Publishing and the Controlled Trials Register will round off this collection.

Also, Cary-based Dialog says the IMS R&D focus file will be enhanced with images, and American Medical Association journals will be launched on Dialog DataStar by the end of the year.
