Thomson Reuters Adds Citation Mapping Tool to ISI Web of Knowledge

July 23, 2008

PHILADELPHIA, and LONDON, July 23 /PRNewswire/ — The Scientific business of Thomson Reuters today announced that new features have been added to ISI Web of Knowledge. Most notably, a citation mapping tool has been incorporated to provide researchers with a visual result to their research.

The citation mapping tool tracks an article’s cited and citing references through two generations, allowing researchers to visually discover an article’s wider relationships. The resulting “family tree” of information can be utilized by the researcher to highlight the citation relationships most important to their research.

“Users shape each upgrade to ISI Web of Knowledge through our rigorous user-centered design process,” said James Pringle, vice president of product development for the Scientific business of Thomson Reuters. “The features found in this most recent version support the quality data and innovative functionality that customers have come to expect from Thomson Reuters.”

ISI Web of Knowledge, an integrated, versatile research platform, delivers easy access to high quality, diversified scholarly information in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities, as well as search and analysis tools that enhance this content. The platform provides users the ability to search the right content and find relevant information — whether that information is found in international journals, open access resources, books, patents, proceedings or Web sites.
