New Zealand Universities Choose Web of Science by Thomson Reuters

SYDNEY, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

All Eight Universities Continue With Web of Science for Education And Research Needs

The Scientific business of Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, announced today that all eight universities in New Zealand have chosen to renew Web of Science(R), the foremost multidisciplinary citation resource, for their education and research needs.

The eight universities are the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, Massey University, University of Otago, Victoria University of Wellington and University of Waikato. All eight universities are committed to Web of Science for a period of three to five years through 2013.

Web of Science provides researchers, administrators, faculty, and students with quick, powerful access to the world's leading citation databases with multidisciplinary coverage of over 10,000 of the most influential, high impact journals worldwide, spanning the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. This includes Open Access journals and more than 110,000 conference proceedings.

Web of Science also provides a unique search method, cited reference searching. This allows users to navigate forward, backward, and through the literature, searching all disciplines and time periods to uncover all the information relevant to their research. Users can also navigate to electronic full-text journal articles.

In addition, six of the eight universities have Century of Science(TM), a collection of deep backfiles which expands Web of Science with the most important scientific bibliographic and cited reference data going as far back as 1900.

Said Mr. Jeroen Prinsen, Director of Australia and New Zealand for Scientific, ``We are pleased that Web of Science continues to be the main resource of choice for universities as seen by the strong endorsement from all eight universities in New Zealand with their renewals. As the leading global provider of intelligent information to academic and research communities, we remain committed to supporting higher education and research in this part of the world.’’
