The MANTIS Database is the largest source of osteopathic, chiropractic and manual medical literature in the world.
MANTIS (Manual Alternative and Natural Therapy Index System) addresses all areas of alternative medical literature. It has also become the largest index of peer reviewed articles for disciplines including; chiropractic, osteopathy, homeopathy, and manual medicine.
MANTIS includes citations and abstracts from all alternative medicine disciplines. Each record contains a complete citation, the language of the abstract, the language of the article, and the headings and subheadings which describe the article. Approximately 70% of the references include abstracts.
MANTIS uses standard Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). This includes the use of headings, subheadings, and check tags. Searches with “binding” of heading and subheading are also possible. In addition to the standard MeSH, a supplemental thesaurus has been developed that permits more precise indexing of alternative medical material.
