Northern Light Extends Its Content Partnership Business Strategy Through New Alliance with ProQuest

Northern Light Life Sciences Conference Abstracts Collection is Latest Addition to ProQuest Dialog


BOSTON, March 28, 2018 — Northern Light®, a provider of machine learning-powered knowledge management platforms for market research and competitive intelligence, has extended its content partnership strategy through an alliance with ProQuest, which this month added Northern Light Life Sciences Conference Abstracts to the content available in its ProQuest Dialog™ information service. ProQuest curates content that matters to the advancement of knowledge, assembling an archive of billions of vetted, indexed documents.

For Northern Light, the alliance with ProQuest represents the continuation of a partnership business strategy that began several years ago. Northern Light currently has content distribution partnerships with ProQuest, Comtex, Wolters Kluwer Health, and Thomson Reuters.

The Northern Light Life Sciences Conference Abstracts collection features nearly 2.8 million abstracts and posters from more than 3,800 conferences since 2010.

“With millions of authors addressing thousands of diseases and drugs, Northern Light is a key source of early data from studies and clinical trials,” said Michael Rai, General Manager of ProQuest’s corporate market. “We are pleased to partner with Northern Light, which fills a gap for ProQuest Dialog customers doing groundbreaking pharmaceutical and biomedical research.”

“Because Northern Light carefully curates our proprietary content sets, other business information providers see great value in them,” C. David Seuss, Northern Light’s CEO, said. “It is a testimony to the quality of our content that companies like ProQuest want to partner with us.”

In addition to the Life Sciences Conference Abstracts collection, Northern Light makes available the Northern Light Business News collection for license to distribution partners and corporate clients. The business news collection provides an index of 40,000 news articles per day from 6,500 hand-selected industry and technology news websites and is optimized for competitive intelligence, industry analysis, and social and technology trend tracking.
