Thomson Scientific, part of The Thomson Corporation, a provider of information solutions, has partnered with the Chinese Academy of Sciences to host the Chinese Science Citation Database on the ISI Web of Knowledge platform.
The Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD) is comprised of the top scholarly publications from the People’s Republic of China. Bringing new depth to the ISI Web of Knowledge’s already extensive records, the Chinese Science Citation Database will comprise more than 1,000 scholarly publications with more than 1.3 million records in all, and will be fully searchable within ISI Web of Knowledge. Users will also be able to link from citations within the Chinese Science Citation Database to data within the popular Web of Science.
Available in early 2008, the Chinese Science Citation Database will be the first non-English product available within ISI Web of Knowledge. Because much of the bibliographic information will appear in both Chinese (Simplified) and English, ISI Web of Knowledge will be upgraded to support Unicode – expanding research capabilities and empowering users with new customization options. Users can conduct searches in a preferred language.
