Clarivate Plc, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, today unveiled significant enhancements to the Web of Science™ offering researchers a highly dynamic, personal and indispensable research assistant through a host of new features and a redesigned user interface.
The Web of Science is the world’s most trusted publisher-independent global citation database, home to an unrivalled breadth of world-class research literature linked to a rigorously selected core of journals. It enables the global research community to track ideas across disciplines and time from almost 1.9 billion cited references from over 171 million records.
The new Web of Science simplifies how the index’s world-class data and analytics are presented, accessed and used, allowing for a smooth and intuitive user experience. The new features include:
The new Web of Science is also designed to support a range of future developments, including personalized home pages, author alerts and article-level metrics. It works in tandem with My Research Assistant, the mobile application that enables scientific researchers to easily search, save and share Web of Science publication records using their mobile devices. The app ensures researchers can stay informed of the latest research developments within their personal and professional fields of interest, with the ability to search and save research publication records, create reading lists and curate a personalized feed that reflects their chosen topics of interest – wherever they might be.
Keith Collier, Senior Vice President of Product, Science at Clarivate said: “The new Web of Science enables the research community to turn great ideas into real world outcomes. We have invested in advanced resources and tools designed to accelerate the pace of discovery and improve the researcher experience to create the most powerful Web of Science yet – intuitively delivering what researchers need, when they need it, wherever they are.”
Clarivate has sought extensive feedback from customers in building the new Web of Science, which has been available for preview since November 2020. The application now offers researchers a more responsive and personalized user experience through improved search capabilities, faster page loads, greater accessibility for the visually or physically impaired, and more responsive design for mobile viewing.
