The Ovid NutriHealth Production Process  

The Ovid NutriHealth database is closely managed by a team of experts, who rigorously assess sources for value and relevance. Many databases skip this vetting procedure or rely on automated systems.  

Experts conduct a thorough evaluation of each journal and resource against a checklist of criteria relating to potentially predatory or unethical publishing practices. 

Our 60-point checklist measures across several diverse areas - find out more about our journal assessment process here.

"One recent study concluded that 8,000 predatory journals collectively publish 420,000 papers every year, nearly a fifth of the scientific community's annual output of 2.5 million papers."

(Naomi Oreskes, Predatory Journals That Publish Shoddy Research Put People’s Lives at Risk, Scientific American)  

However, you can be confident that Ovid NutriHealth is relevant  to the sciences of nutrition, food and health and meets high standards of scientific validity and rigour.
