Thomson Scientific Launches 'Confessions ... of a User' Campaign Asking 'Are You the New Face of Research?'

    Video Component Enables Users to Upload Video Confessions/ Testimonials
    Inclusion on for Peer-to-Peer Viewing

    PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Nov. 1 /CNW/ -- Thomson Scientific, part of The
Thomson Corporation (NYSE:   TOC; TSX: TOC) and leading provider of information
solutions to the worldwide research and business communities, today announced
the launch of its new campaign "Confessions ... of a User." The campaign
features video confessions/testimonials from real- life ISI Web of Knowledge
users representing various personas. In addition to the already featured
videos, there is a YouTube-style component which enables other users to upload
their own confessions/testimonials.
    ISI Web of Knowledge users can visit to watch their
peers talk about how they use ISI Web of Knowledge and what it has helped them
to achieve.  They are also encouraged to submit their own video for inclusion
on the web site. The first twenty videos uploaded to the gallery will receive
an iPOD Shuffle and the confession downloaded the most by the end of the year
will win an iPOD Touch.
    "Every 1.5 seconds a unique user is accessing ISI Web of Knowledge," said
Jim Pringle, Thomson Scientific's Vice President of Product Development. "This
peer-to-peer approach answers questions and offers recommendations from the
people who know our product best - the users."
    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.
