ProQuest solutions has recently been chosen by the Cyprus Academic Library Consortium (CALC) to provide valuable information on a wide variety of subjects to its members which include the three public and four private universities in Cyprus.
Looking to deliver essential content to academics in Cyprus, CALC chose ProQuest solutions to improve researchers’ outcomes. These included ProQuest Central, and APA databases PsycINFO™ and PsycARTICLES™.
ProQuest Central provides academics in Cyprus with the full-text scholarly journals alongside other content researchers need; comprising of 30 of ProQuest’s most essential databases, covering a very broad range of subjects including business, science & technology, medicine & health, literature, the arts, history and many more. With all resources available completely without restriction for use in course packs for teachers.
"On behalf of CALC, we chose to subscribe to ProQuest Central due to the longstanding requests from our academics. In addition, the consortium price offered made it possible for all the members to participate, something which does not apply to all our subscriptions. Therefore, cost, content and participation are the three reasons for subscribing to ProQuest Central," said Maria Haraki, Cyprus University of Technology.
The two behavioral and specialist science databases; PsycINFO (abstract & index database) and PsycARTICLES (full-text database) provide academics with psychological journal information published by the American Psychological Association (APA) from 1800 to the present, all of which are updated on a weekly basis.
Content is easily accessible enabling browsing and in-depth search options for academics, enhancing their research from journals that would previously have been difficult to access.
