SCIENTIFIC AND SCHOLARLY RESEARCH Alain Frey Strategic Business Manager October 2013 THE NEW WEB OF SCIENCE: KEEPING PACE WITH THE EVOLUTION OF RESEARCH DISCOVERY
THE NEW WEB OF SCIENCE Keeping Pace with the Evolution of Research Discovery 1
2 THE EVOLUTION OF RESEARCH CONNECTING PEOPLE, CONTENT AND WORKFLOWS THROUGH CITATIONS Thomson Reuters Web of Science provides a single destination to access for the world’s largest collection of research data, publications, proceedings and patents. It started with an idea… …that grew into the world’s most trusted resource… … and continues to evolve with the pace of research. More than half a century ago, Dr. Eugene Garfield discovered that citations could help navigate the information flood and gauge the impact of journal literature. Web of Science is the premier resource for research discovery. Our content and tools are trusted by more than 6,000 of the world’s leading organizations driving scholarly research and scientific policy. The next generation of Web of Science brings together the most trusted source of scholarly content and the new standards in online search in one intuitive easy- to-use environment.
3 THE EVOLUTION OF RESEARCH Innovations to Enhance Search & Discovery We are excited to introduce several key enhancements to the Web of Science that will help our customers transform the way they search for and assess the quality of research content. RESEARCH PRODUCING ORGANIZATIONS STRONG BRAND The Most Comprehensive Citation Content A Better Research Tool Easier Research Discovery Web of Science and Google Scholar are forging a unique collaboration to make the Web of Science instantly discoverable and bringing the power of our citation connections to the open web. Web of Science customers will be able to view and access Web of Science Times Cited Counts and records directly from a Google Scholar search. Reciprocal links will provide an easy path to full-text with links back out to Google Scholar. In January, the Web of Science will have an all new look and feel. This release directly addresses customer requests for a more intuitive and easier search experience – while maintaining the advanced search capabilities our seasoned researchers and power users expect. Developed with the emerging needs of the researcher in mind, our January release will provide a simpler search and discovery environment all branded under the banner of the Web of Science. We are bringing new regional content to Web of Science customers and making full text seamlessly available for open access journals. The October launch of the new SciELO Citation Index, trial access to the Chinese Science Citation Database and the upcoming 2014 launch of the new Korean Journal Database brings even more quality, impactful regional content to what is already the largest and most authoritative citation resource.
THE NEW WEB OF SCIENCE Enabling Easier Research Discovery 4
5 EASIER RESEARCH DISCOVERY While the open web is the often starting point, it is not the ultimate destination. Web of Science remains the primary resource for accessing quality and impactful research. Our new collaboration with Google Scholar facilitates the seamless movement between the open web to the next generation of Web of Science and its trusted content through citations. Citation connections that now meet the researcher where their search begins. Simplifies the discovery process Saves researcher’s time by fitting within their existing workflow Makes it easier to access full text
WEB OF SCIENCE AND GOOGLE SCHOLAR Easier Research Discovery Times Cited counts and direct links to the Web of Science are presented within Google Scholar search results. This is the Web of Science Citing Articles Summary Page as displayed to a entitled user. A link back to the Google Scholar results is provided.
WEB OF SCIENCE AND GOOGLE SCHOLAR Easier Research Discovery Clicking on button in Web of Science launches a search on Google Scholar. Google Scholar automatically displays link to full text, at user’s university if available based on IP address.
WEB OF SCIENCE AND GOOGLE SCHOLAR Easier Research Discovery This is the Web of Science Citing Articles Summary Page as displayed to a user without complete entitlement. The page is a limited listing of cited articles, and allows user to view static version of full records and Citation Results based on their subscription.
THE NEW WEB OF SCIENCE Delivering the Most Comprehensive Citation Content 9
10 THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE CITATION CONTENT Starting with the trusted collection of high-impact content, the Web of Science uses citation connections to map paths from core literature to the broadest set of citation content available. Citation Connections that help researchers trace the path from idea to discovery to development. Provides citation connections that can be followed across regions, subjects, and content types As part of our commitment to regional content expansion, we will continue to partner with local academic and government organizations to deliver regionally relevant, multidisciplinary resources. Increases access to content from rapidly emerging and increasingly influential regions Makes historical yet highly influential research easily accessible
11 THE LATEST REGIONAL CONTENT ADDITION SciELO Citation Index Our collaboration with the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) will bring greater visibility and improved access to research from emerging economies, particularly in Latin America, the Caribbean, South Africa, and developed Latin-language areas including Spain and Portugal. RESEARCH PRODUCING ORGANIZATIONS Weekly updates from SciELO Brazil data feed The same core feature set as other Web of Science resources Approximately 650 titles Over 350 new titles added to content covered by Web of Science Over 4 million Cited References All titles are open access with links to full-text at SciELO site
