PHILADELPHIA, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced a collaboration with the Emerging Markets Institute at Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management to power a unique academic research portal through the Web of Science™, the premier scientific search and discovery platform and industry authority in science, social science, and arts & humanities citation indexes.
"When first establishing the institute, we recognized that our partners needed a means to access this broad body of academic knowledge, and sought to find a solution," said Javier Perez, research director for the Emerging Markets Institute. "We developed a portal to provide our corporate partners with the same valuable resources which we have here in the university."
The portal provides access to 50 academic journals with articles covering 43 emerging economies across the past five years. The portal web page also contains timely blogs about recent publications and trends in academic publishing about emerging markets.
"We have not seen this tool offered by any other peer institution to the private sector, and are pleased to collaborate with Thomson Reuters on this," said Richard J. Coyle, executive director for the Emerging Markets Institute at Cornell. "We considered many information databases in our search for an authority on the emerging markets, and unanimously chose Thomson Reuters Web of Science for our portal."
This collaboration highlights Thomson Reuters continued commitment to spotlight regionally relevant scholarly literature and identify influential authors and research within rapidly developing research centers. The organization recently integrated the SciELO Citation Index, which includes approximately 700 titles and more than 4 million cited references from Open Access journals from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Venezuela, into the Web of Science.
"Thomson Reuters and Cornell's Emerging Markets Institute share a commitment to promoting research from emerging regions," said Gordon Macomber, managing director of Thomson Reuters Scholarly and Scientific Research business. "We look forward to supporting the Emerging Market Institute's corporate partners by sharing high-quality Open Access content from developing research centers."
The Web of Science and its underlying citation indices have been the primary resource for research discovery for 50 years. Its content and tools are trusted by more than 6,000 of the world's leading scholarly institutions and is the only interface to include subject-specific, curated content on emerging trends.
