The definitive international public health database, Global Health is the only specialist bibliographic, abstracting and indexing database dedicated to public health research and practice. Derived from over 5,000 journals, plus reports, books and conferences, Global Health contains over 1.2 million scientific records from 1973 to the present. Over 100,000 records are added each year, and over 97% of these records include an abstract. Publications from over 158 countries in 50 languages are abstracted, and all relevant non-English language papers are translated to give access to research not available through any other database.
The database’s open serials policy and coverage of international and grey literature means that 60% of material contained in Global Health is unique to the database. Everything from proceedings, patents, theses, electronic only publications and other difficult-to-obtain sources is included.
