PHILADELPHIA, and LONDON, July 23 /CNW/ -- 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.
