It offers public, university and medical libraries an immediate resource of nearly 50,000 articles from over 160 international, peer-reviewed and professional journals, magazines, reports, proceedings, and association and consumer newsletters (most from 1990 to the present), plus hundreds of pamphlets, booklets, special reports, original research and book excerpts. In addition to the standard bibliographic citations, the database indexes each article by more than 225 subject categories, 16 article types and 11 publication types. From both a professional and consumer standpoint, Alt-HealthWatch provides in-depth coverage across the full spectrum of subject areas covered by 'Alternative Medicine'."
