Thomson Reuters Introduces the New Web of Knowledge
New Version Offers the Most Intuitive Research Experience to Date
Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, April 4, 2011 — Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of the new Web of KnowledgeSM. This latest release of the world’s leading source of scholarly research and citation data delivers better functionality and new features — creating the most intuitive research platform available.
Introduced more than a decade ago, Web of Knowledge has steadily evolved into an integrated and powerful search and discovery platform that delivers access to the world's leading scholarly publications in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. It also provides metrics and analytical tools for assessing research influence and impact.
The new Web of Knowledge builds upon this legacy and introduces more highly requested features for a new generation of librarians and researchers, including enhanced search capabilities for more accurate results and improved data management and analysis tools, for the most comprehensive search experience possible.
“Today’s announcement marks a new chapter in the evolution of Web of Knowledge,” said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president, Thomson Reuters. “Many of the new features and enhancements have resulted from listening and responding to the challenges posed by today’s librarians and researchers.”
Key features of the new Web of Knowledge include:
- Full integration of ResearcherID with Web of Science.
- Greater depth of citation resources with the fully integrated BIOSIS Citation Index and Chinese Science Citation Database.
- New citation summary report allows users to intuitively navigate multiple resources.
- Faster search and improved recall as a result of automated query expansion.
- The improved Analyze tool, making sense of your entire search — whether you retrieve hundreds or thousands of results.
Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge provides access to the world’s largest citation databases, including Web of Science, which covers over 100 years of research in more than 12,000 of the highest impact journals, and over 110,000 conference proceedings records from around the world.
