"First-year and second-year undergraduate students attending writing courses and English Language Preparation courses find Opposing Viewpoints in Context (OVIC) useful because it has short easy articles that are easier to read compared to articles in other databases. It can also be a source of inspiration as it presents recent controversial issues. The maps and lesson plans are particularly useful. OVIC contains a satisfying number of different kinds of sources e.g. reference, news articles, journal articles etc. so a student can see different types of sources in terms of content on a single page without having to use a lot of databases. It is a good starting point for debatable topics and for beginners who are taking their first steps in research. We would recommend OVIC especially to other universities/colleges which are in non-English speaking countries."
--Reference Librarians, John S. Bailey Library at DEREE-The American College of Greece
"Formerly known as Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center and originally reviewed in 2002, this database just keeps getting better and better... OVIC is definitely one of the best databases for high-school students for debates and research papers. Other databases may have some of the same articles but certainly not the variety or depth. This is a recommended purchase for high-school and college libraries."
