Taiwan’s Leading Academic Institution Chooses Thomson Scientific’s Web Of Science To Accelerate Research Discovery Efforts


Taipei, Taiwan, 07/13/2006 - Thomson Scientific today announced that Academia Sinica, one of the most prominent academic institutions in the Republic of China, has obtained access to Web of Science® as an important driver in its effort to accelerate the development of academic research. Now Taiwan’s leading researchers have full access to the 37 million records in Web of Science dating back to 1900. Thomson Scientific is a business of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC),

Academia Sinica chose Web of Science because it delivers more than 100 years of the highest-quality cited reference data.

“No other database offers this level of accuracy and detail on such a multidisciplinary scale, giving researchers the confidence to pursue a research path without missing critical data that may change results and conclusions,” said Prof. Shiah of Academia Sinica. "For researchers, the confidence to pursue a research path without missing any critical data is essential. For this reason, Web of Science is a vital research tool that will help me to find related ideas as part of my study and article writing.”

The Analyze Tool, which helps researches take a broader view and discover emerging ‘hot’ areas plus find top researchers and institutions in their field for future collaboration, was also an important factor in Academia Sinica’s decision to choose Web of Science.

"Keith MacGregor, executive vice president of Academic & Government Markets at Thomson Scientific added, “we are proud to support Academia Sinica’s pursuit of an intellectual environment that will nurture young scholars, promote international cooperation and scholarly exchanges, and positively impact research excellence in the country.”
