Thomson Reuter’s Bid To Transform Scientific Literature Analysis

From Information World Review:

Thomson Reuters has laid out a strategic plan to incorporate Essential Science Indicators (ESI) in its research analytics suite.

At two recent user forums in Europe and Australia the company said that InCites, its analytics platform, will become the main environment for Thomson Reuters analytic functionality related to scientific literature, and will include the company’s ESI offering in 2013.

From the TR Announcement:

InCites user forum attendees also learned that Thomson Reuters intends to add a journal analysis module, featuring enhanced Journal Impact Factor data, to InCites later in 2013. Despite plans to incorporate ESI and other functionality in InCites, the company states it will continue to support customers accessing these robust tools in their current environments.
