Pharmaceutical Press enhances MedicinesComplete

Apologies for cross-posting.

Dear colleagues,

I thought you might be interested to learn that Pharmaceutical Press has
announced a major new release of its online drug and healthcare resource

The new release of MedicinesComplete demonstrates notable improvements

to its usability, including a new, more streamlined interface, OpenURL

linking and improved search options. These improvements are designed to better
support the information habits of MedicinesComplete readers.

With the new version, users of MedicinesComplete can now search a wider range of
trusted pharmaceutical resources -- such as Martindale:

the Complete Drug Reference and most recently Stockley's Herbal Medicines
Interactions -- the results bringing together information on

prescribing, dispensing and administering drugs and medicines in one place.

Please do not hesitate to contact Pharmaceutical Press's Celina Edwards should
you require any further information:  celina.edwards@rpsgb.org. Free trials of
MedicinesComplete are available by contacting  sales@medicinescomplete.com

Best regards,

London, 2nd November 2009 -- Pharmaceutical Press is pleased to announce a new
release of its flagship online subscription service, MedicinesComplete. The

the latest enhancements to MedicinesComplete will have a genuine, positive
impact on people using

the site. For example, the search function now presents results in a way that is
more in tune with how our target audience looks for and uses information. We're
also providing stronger support for our many institutional customers by
integrating more effectively with their wider collections, and enabling them to
demonstrate their role in providing access to our information by co-branding the
