The Thomson Corporation has announced a major increase in the linking power of ISI Web of Knowledge, including full-text links to journals from hundreds of new publishers. The new release of ISI Web of Knowledge incorporates many additions to the Thomson ISI linking capability, including use of the digital object identifier (DOI).

ISI Web of Knowledge now supports direct, customized links to over 300 publishers for a total of more than 10,000 journals. Users will have the ability to link most of the nearly 200 Open Access journals indexed by Web of Science – a key component of ISI Web of Knowledge. In addition, OpenURL linking is being enhanced with direct links from search summary results and inbound OpenURL linking to more ISI Web of Knowledge products.

ISI Web of Knowledge links are included with each customers’ subscription to this single resource that facilitates discovery by offering researchers seamless navigation to the highest-quality, multidisciplinary journal, patent and Web content, evaluation tools, and bibliographic management products. Library customers can customize their links to reflect the publishers for which they have subscriptions, with newly improved facilities for libraries to establish and update these entitlements. This customization is available through ISI Links as well as through integration with an OpenURL server.

“Linking to the e-journal collection of these new publishers will further enrich the depth of content available through ISI Web of Knowledge,” said Phil Heller, senior director of Linkage Business Development, Thomson Scientific. “This release demonstrates our continued commitment to provide our customers with access to the highest quality, most relevant research information available and to create a tightly integrated, online universe of the comprehensive research information and tools needed to accelerate discovery.”
