THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science 7.0 via the Web of Knowledge 3.0 Platform The next generation in Smart Discovery from Thomson Scientific The Web of Science and NCitation Indexing THOMSON SCIE TIFIC Origins: Dr. Eugene Garfield: a pioneer in the field of information science and scientific communication. His vision: using cited reference searching as a basis for scientific and scholarly discovery. • Dr. Garfield’s 1955 article in Science introduced citation indexes as a new type of classification tool -- Use a citation as a search term (instead of a keyword) and as a way to follow the “development path” of an idea. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Evolution of the citation index and research evaluation using citations 1960’s -> Science Citation Index Print 1970’s -> SciSearch, SocialSciSearch 1980’s -> CD-ROM version, A&HCI Late 1990’s -> Web of Science THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science Diversity Quality •Diversity: Truly Multidisciplinary – All fields of research are included in over 200 categories – 8,600+ journals total Over 6,100 titles in the hard sciences alone (SCIe) Social sciences – 1790 titles Arts & humanities – 1125 titles THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science Diversity Quality • Quality: Evaluated, Selected Content – Every Web of Science journal is individually selected for influence within its respective discipline. – Our selection criteria is unbiased, impartial, time-tested. We are “Publisher-Neutral”, evaluating research – Commercial, Society, Open Access publications, etc. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC A closer look: Journal Selection Process Why be selective? – Economically impractical to cover everything – Analysis of citation data has shown that a core of 2,000 journals account for about 85% of all that is published and 95% of what is cited. – However this core is not static, and additional journals must be included. Thomson Scientific covers this expanded core of journals and enhances it with coverage of hot disciplines that may become main-stream in the future. Additional journals are indexed to provide a broad and even distribution of data across all disciplines and geographic regions. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC A closer look: Journal Selection Process Thomson Scientifics editorial staff review around 2,000 new journals annually. 10-12% of these journals are added to the collection. Existing database constantly monitored to ensure that journals are maintaining high standards Many factors, are taken into account: • Basic publishing standards – Timeliness – Follows publishing conventions – English language bibliographic information – Peer Review • Editorial content – Will it enrich the database? – Is it a hot topic? • International diversity of authorship • Citation analysis – Impact Factor, Immediacy index – How the journal compares to other journals in its field – Citation analysis of editorial board The Web of Science and NCitation Indexing THOMSON SCIE TIFIC The Impact Factor The Impact Factor can be considered to represent how many times an average article was cited in the previous 2 years How was the 2003 Impact Factor of “Journal-X” calculated? A = Total number of times all journals published in 2003 cited articles published in Journal-X in 2001-2002 B = Number of articles published by Journal-X in 2001-2002 Impact Factor = A/B Considered by many to be the de-facto method to evaluate journals, but must be used with care as journal citation data should be used in context and other factors taken into consideration. Another tool for journal evaluation is the Immediacy Index which represents how many times the average article is cited within it’s year of publication. The Immediacy Index can provide valuable insight to just how cutting edge a journal is THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science Unique Diversity Quality Data Data: unique capabilities – Capture of Author Cited References over 55 years provides for methods of discovery that are simply not possible elsewhere. – Navigate “Cited References” and “Times Cited” backward and forward in time across decades of research. – Find articles that cannot be found through traditional free-text searching techniques THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Citation Navigation 2004 2003 From just a single record within the Web of Science, expand your search by simply 2003 Times following the links designed Cited to drive discovery. 2004 Cited References 2001 Related Records 2000 1998 2004 2002 1993 Citing 1999 … moving Backward in time via Cited References, 1994 Forward in time via Times Cited, and expand your search with Related Records. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Citation Index - The Value Add • The language of science is always changing, concepts and terminology continue to evolve • Free-text searching alone will never maximize retrieval of critical information… For Example, the early research connecting HIV to AIDS actually referred to the virus using two different terms. Neither term was “HIV” LAV (in Europe) Human Immunodeficiency virus HIV HTLV-III (the world) (in USA) 1983 1987 Present THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science Unique Diversity Quality Depth Data • Depth! – Coverage back to 1945 in the Sciences, to 1956 in the Social Sciences, to 1975 in Arts & Humanities – 1900-1944 Back files in Development! ** Current information is of course critical. However, access to an archive of influential research is absolutely important. ** Impact of previous findings, even decades old, may be very significant. One must retain the resources necessary to make these assessments. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Navigate through citations to find all the key steps for any discovery. THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science Backfiles Five or ten years of backfiles only begins to tap the wealth of information accessible through General and Cited Reference search and navigation. Clearly researchers are still heavily citing papers from more than 20, 30, 40 years ago – and even longer.

THOMSON SCIENTIFIC … the ISI Web of KNOWLEDGE THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Web of Science 7.0 via the Web of Knowledge 3.0 Platform The next generation in Smart Discovery from Thomson Scientific Thank You THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Question & Answers Q. There are many different journal lists which is the right one to use? A. The “ISI Master List”, which is sometimes known as the “Philadelphia List”, is the list of all the journals that are indexed by Thomson Scientific in all products. There are some 8,900 journals in the ISI Master List, 300 or so more than the combined source lists of the 3 citation indices that make up the Web of Science. The Science Citation Index come in two versions, SCI (used for print and CD) is around 3,400 journals and SCI expanded used for SciSearch and Web of Science is 6,100 journals. As outlined earlier, the inclusion of a journal in the list does not necessarily mean it is a the best journal in its field and other factors should be considered. See the following URL for more information: http://www.isinet.com/essays/ THOMSON SCIENTIFIC Question & Answers Q. How do I apply to have a Journal indexed by Thomson Scientific A. Thomson Scientific needs at least three consecutive current issues to complete an evaluation. For details of the application procedure see the following URL: http://www.isinet.com/selection/ Thomson Scientific does monitor the publishing and research communities for new journals and journals that have significantly improved in recent times, therefore journals may be proactively selected for inclusion.
