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.

•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

          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

   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”

        (in Europe)             Human Immunodeficiency virus
              HTLV-III                       (the world)

             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.
