Thomson Web of Science Workshop - Celebrating Research Month @ JCU Townsville

Learn more about Thomson’s "Web of Science" - one of the world's leading citation databases.
The use of 'number of cites by peers' for evaluating research is based on the assumption that citations are a way of giving credit to and recognizing the value, quality, and significance of an author's work.

Thomson’s Web of Science is one of the premier publishers in the field of citation analysis and bibliometrics. Excellence in Research for Australia will be partially measured, depending on the Field of Research, by citation data derived from either Web of Science or Scopus.
