Literature searching for prior research work on Ayurveda can turn out to be a frustrating exercise because the majority of the journals publishing papers on Ayurveda are not indexed in international databases such as Pubmed. Absence of controlled vocabulary that can facilitate literature search in the areas of Ayurvedic research makes it even more difficult to access available data effectively. An online indexing service exclusively for research articles published on Ayurveda has been set up to fill this gap.
