High quality scholarly resources in a range of disciplines

Books at Ovid offer a growing list of more than 4,000 current online book editions from the world’s most prestigious scholarly publishers, including one of the largest selection of core clinical ebooks.

Most titles (à la carte) and collections are available for perpetual access acquisition, and some collections are also available for subscription. (In some rare cases, subscription is the only option available.)

Special Upgrades for Purchases

If a new edition of an LWW ebook is released within 90 days fo purchase, Ovid will agree upon request to upgrade customers to the new edition at no extra charge "providing there is no material difference in price."

Perpetual Access Fees

Customers with an active Ovid User Licence do not pay any ongoing access fees for past purchases. An Ovid User Licence is included with every new purchase and subscription. If a customer is not planning on acquiring any new content, they can pay a "nominal" fee for an Ovid User Licence separately in order to extend access to their past purchases.
