Thomson Scientific Launches the New Face of Research

    New ISI Web of Knowledge Offers User-Friendly Scholarly Research

    PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Aug. 28 /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 the redesigned ISI Web of Knowledge platform. The user-focused
design introduces a unique approach to searching, discovering and organizing
premier scholarly research. ISI Web of Knowledge 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.
    ISI Web of Knowledge is an integrated, Web-based platform that supports
all levels of scientific and scholarly research within academic, corporate,
government or not-for-profit environments.
    "The redesigned ISI Web of Knowledge introduces an entirely new approach
to finding, analyzing and sharing information," said Jim Pringle, Thomson
Scientific's Vice President of Product Development. "Our new layout is easy
for novice users to navigate, while providing the powerful capabilities that
veteran users have come to rely on."

    Some highlights of the new ISI Web of Knowledge are:

    -- Redesigned layout makes searching intuitive for novice users, yet
       offers advanced searching options seasoned researchers rely upon.
    -- "All Databases" search enables simple one-click searching across
       multiple Web of Knowledge resources.
    -- A unique approach to search refinement allows users to focus results by
       subject area, document type, author, language, and other qualifiers
       across diverse content sets.
    -- Individual records clearly highlight citation results and related
       records to support interactive and serendipitous discovery.
    ISI Web of Knowledge is home to many of Thomson Scientific's most
prominent offerings: Web of Science -- the leading information resource for
information professionals and researchers worldwide, now home to more than a
century of the most influential research; Essential Science Indicators -- a
resource that ranks the performance of scientists, journals, institutions and
countries across 22 fields; Journal Citation Reports -- with its pioneering
"Impact Factor," JCR has set the standard in providing a systematic, objective
way to evaluate, categorize and compare the world's leading scholarly
journals; and now EndNote Web, a new bibliographic management tool that
provides users with easy online access and storage for their references, and
the ability to instantly format bibliographies in their word processors.
