The MANTIS Database (Manual, Alternative and Natural Therapy Index System) is an index of English-language and selected other-language biomedical journal articles. The database has a primary focus on chiropractic, osteopathic and manual medicine, although it includes citations and abstracts from all alternative medicine disciplines. Each record within the MANTIS Database 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. The database is indexed using standard Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). This includes the use of headings, subheadings, and check tags.[1]

MANTIS is available through the Web by ChiroACCESS, HealthIndex, Ovid Technologies and ProQuest (Dialog and DataStar).[2][3][4]
