Summary:

"During the event, the Intellectual Property and Science division at Thomson Reuters announced a partnership with SciELO to integrate the SciELO Citation Index into Web of Knowledge. This platform allows access to several databases of bibliographical references, such as Web of Science, Current Contents Connect and Journal Citation Reports (JCR), both for searches and for bibliometric indicators. The three institutions believe that the initiative will afford greater visibility and improve access to research from the 15 Ibero-American countries and South Africa, whose collections are indexed in the SciELO Network....The SciELO Citation Index will include approximately 650 titles and more than 4 million references cited from open access periodicals in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, México, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Venezuela....According to Thomson Reuters, the addition of SciELO to Web of Knowledge will follow a model similar to that of the Chinese Science Citation Database, which has been hosted on Web of Knowledge since 2008, and that of the planned 2014 launch of a database of periodicals within Korean academic literature....“For us, it a pleasure to collaborate with SciELO to promote the reach of important research from emerging regions, as well as to enhance our own database by integrating high-quality content and open access into the Web of Knowledge,” affirmed Christopher Burghardt, Vice President of academic and scientific research at Thomson Reuters."
