Thomson Reuters Introduces Century of Social Sciences(TM)

September 14, 2009

PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Thomson Reuters has announced the launch of Century of Social Sciences(TM), a superior and unique set of backfiles covering groundbreaking research in the social sciences back to 1900. Century of Social Sciences expands the coverage of Web of Science(R), available on the ISI Web of Knowledge(R) platform — the world’s largest citation environment of the highest quality scholarly literature.

Culled from over 300 prestigious journals, information dating back to 1900 is now available to researchers, faculty, authors, and students allowing them to track research trends, authors, and articles over the entire century, and to identify seminal studies that form the basis for today’s research.

These social science journals represent a collection of the oldest and most prestigious sources in their respective fields. Full bibliographic and cited reference data is available in disciplines such as communication, education, geography, history, law, political science, and public health. Century of Social Sciences also features extensive coverage of high-impact psychology journals, including key titles associated with Sigmund Freud.

“We are proud to announce the release of Century of Social Sciences, a highly valued, much anticipated archive of data,” said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president at Thomson Reuters. “This selective, yet comprehensive archive of social sciences data — available nowhere else — continues in the tradition of Century of Science, which was released in 2004. Researchers now have the ability to search social sciences information in one place, across many disciplines, following paths forward and backward in time through cited reference navigation, with links to archival full text.”
