The UK Social Policy & Practice database has enhanced its coverage of child research with the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children merging its bibliographic database this month.
The database was first created in 2005 when the original five UK agencies – each specialists in seeking out high quality reports and research papers on all aspects of social and community health policy and practice – agreed to a merger of their individual content in order to make it available to the widest possible audience.
Current SPP Consortium members who create the database content are: the National Children’s Bureau, The Knowledge Exchange, Centre for Policy on Ageing and Social Care Institute for Excellence who create the database content.
The database contains some 350,000 references to papers, books and reports. It is selective in its coverage of peer reviewed papers, with its main strength coming from its comprehensive collection of research and policy reports from local and central government, charities, think tanks and research institutes – some 30% of the content.
