With Dialog Choice, graduate schools, universities and other academic institutions now can provide their faculty, students and researchers with direct, desktop access to high-value databases of scientific, technical and medical research, as well as news, business intelligence and other current awareness content, aggregated by Dialog from leading information publishers.
"We're delighted to extend the Dialog Choice plan to academic institutions around the world," said Viji Krishnan, Dialog vice president, publisher management.
