What's in IPA and who makes it?

IPA, the International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, is an index of the world's pharmacy literature. IPA indexes more that 750 journals with coverage of new drug development, drug evaluations, pharmacy practice, cosmetics, herbal preparations, state pharmacy association journals and abstracts of papers presented at ASHP meetings. There are more than 400,000 abstracts dating from 1970 to present. This index was originated by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in 1964, but has been wholly owned by Thomson Reuters since 2005.
