A comprehensive on-line subscription service targeting physician-users will be produced by publishers Harcourt General, Times Mirror and Wolters Kluwer. The trio announced they will join forces to produce the on-line service called MD Consult.

MD Consult will provide access to the full contents of 35 medical journals and more than 30 medical reference texts. About 200,000 pages of text will be available for on-line searches. Physicians also will get delivery of medical news tailored to their specific practice profiles.

The new service will be unveiled in May with subscriptions costing about $35 per month.
