Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation BIOSIS Archive – coming soon! Digitization of the historical Biological Abstracts print archive First time to be published in electronic format Coverage from 1926 to 1968 Additional 3.5 million records –Majority of the records are from Journals with additional coverage from academic meetings and books Value added abstracts –Many unique to BIOSIS –Written by respected researchers in the life sciences. Some of the authors are now renowned leaders in their respective fields of research –Because many of the original articles did no include an abstract, the BIOSIS abstracts are essential for comprehensive retrospective searching. Value added indexing –Powerful functionality to maximize search effectiveness –Consistent throughout the entire archive
Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation Open Access Journals (Open web) Traditional Academic Journals (Closed web and print) The addition of the Web Citation Index Repositories: Pre-prints Articles Works in progress Data logs Technical Reports etc. (Open web) Existing Web of Knowledge coverage Additional coverage in the Web Citation Index

Be?
Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation Journal Use Reports – What Is It? A new tool that combines data from a variety of sources in one location: –Web of Knowledge Usage statistics –Journal performance data from the Journal Citation Reports –Institutional publication activity (from Web of Science) Includes citing and cited data at an institutional level –Article-level data from the Web of Science –External data sources: Holdings data from OPAC E-Journal usage statistics from vendors Enables analysis in the context of the institution –Journal Performance and usage for collections evaluation –Publication activity reports analyze journal use and institutional publishing patterns –Able to create profiles to evaluate individual departments/schools
Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation Journal Use Reports – Comprehensive View Journal record view combines journal performance data, publication activity and usage.
Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation Journal Use Reports: Publication Activity An institutional profile lets administrators see where researchers are publishing.
Copyright 2006 Thomson Corporation Journal Use Reports: Institutional Citation Patterns …and what researchers are citing.
