CERN Selects Web of Knowledge from Thomson Reuters


Philadelphia, PA, London, UK, – Thomson Reuters announced today that the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has selected Web of KnowledgeSM. CERN, one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research, is home to the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator.

Following a competitive bidding process, CERN selected Web of Knowledge complete with Web of ScienceSM, Journal Citation Reports® and Conference Proceedings Citation IndexSM. CERN will use the Web of Knowledge solution to facilitate the discovery and retrieval of literature outside of its core field of high energy physics.

Web of Knowledge will provide CERN with access to the world’s leading research citation databases, which include more than 12,000 of the most influential journals worldwide and research dating back to 1900. The databases will be the main point of access to scientific literature for engineers involved with constructing and maintaining the experimental equipment used at the laboratory.

“We’re thrilled to be supporting a world renowned institution such as CERN with our citations information and tools,” said Keith MacGregor, Executive Vice President at Thomson Reuters. “We believe our superior content and editorial processes made Thomson Reuters the must-have partner for CERN.”

“For particle physics, our core business, we already have first-class, community-operated databases, but we needed also robust and comprehensive data for our colleagues working on technical aspects related to the experiments,” added Jens Vigen, Chief Scientific Information Officer at CERN. “Web of Knowledge fulfilled this brief and will enable us to offer a complete service to all of our users.”

About CERN
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.
Founded in 1954, the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 20 Member States.
