Ovid has struck a deal with the UK's Department of Health to give medical students, faculty, and clinicians access to evidence-based organ transplantation research via the OvidSP platform.

The agreement gives access to the Transplant Library to all medical schools in England that have an associated transplant unit electronic. This resource is produced by The Centre for Evidence in Transplantation.

Launched in early 2008 and updated every two weeks, the Transplant Library now includes approximately 6,500 references to all reports (full articles and conference proceedings) of RCTs in organ transplantation published since 1970. The Transplant Library also includes limits that allow users to search for trials of interventions in a specific organ transplant. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are scheduled to be added during 2009.
