Higher Education Foundation in Brazil Seals Its Continued Relationship with Thomson Reuters for Academic Healthcare Content
Date:11/9/2010

BRASILIA, Brazil, Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coordination for the Improvement of Personnel in Higher Education (CAPES) today hosts an official signing ceremony, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Portal de Periodicos. CAPES will sign contract renewals with Thomson Reuters and other international publishers who are part of the Portal.

Thomson Reuters is pleased to provide CAPES with access to its Micromedex® solutions, which include evidence-based information on drugs and drug interactions, disease management, toxicology, alternative medicine, and intravenous drug compatibility. By tapping into this integrated reference source, CAPES ensures that Brazil's students are kept up-to-date with the world's best clinical evidence.

It is important for CAPES to provide Brazil's scholarly community access to the world's leading publishers. Medical and pharmacy students, clinical researchers and other members of national academic programs, through Thomson Reuters, can tap into the world's best clinical evidence on drugs and disease.

Affiliated to the Ministry of Education, CAPES is responsible for the Brazilian post graduate academic system. It works as an agency to support, evaluate, regulate and set rules that guide academic programs with the aim of achieving standards of excellence.

The Portal de Periodicos was created in November 2000 to deliver online access to current scientific content in order to reduce regional differences in the Brazilian research and post graduate system.  It provides more than 268 institutions with access to more than 15,000 journals.
