PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, June 9 /CNW/ -- The Healthcare and Science
business of Thomson Reuters reported today that, despite difficult economic
times, renewals of Web of Science(R) have remained strong, and many existing
customers have even added new content to their portfolio of products. Web of
Science is the world's largest citation database, providing researchers,
administrators, faculty and students access to more than 11,000 actively
covered, high impact journals and 110,000 conference proceedings, totaling 45
million documents and more than 1 billion cited references.
"Academic and government research bodies are facing difficult decisions
when it comes to budget constraints," said Keith MacGregor, EVP, Scientific
and Scholarly Research at Thomson Reuters. "We realize that customers are
being forced to consolidate and to scale back on resources, so we are very
pleased that they continue to choose Thomson Reuters trusted content over the
competition time and again."
Web of Science backfiles have seen especially strong growth, combined
with the new offering of Century of Social Sciences(TM) that delivers
comprehensive backfile and cited reference data from 1900 to present. Recent
sales include Ryerson University, Iowa State University, Wesleyan University
and King Fahd University For Petroleum & Minerals in Saudi Arabia.
"Recent sales of Century of Social Sciences reflect the important role
historical research plays in driving innovation," MacGregor added.
"Researchers turn to Thomson Reuters products to compile decades of
significant research, but also to be part of a network of users that includes
some of the most prestigious institutions in the world."
