SciELO joins Web of Knowledge

DANIEL BUENOOn July 25, FAPESP and the intellectual property and science division of Thomson Reuters announced an agreement to integrate the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) Program database and the Web of Knowledge, the most extensive international database of scientific information. The association will expand the visibility of Brazil and other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, South Africa, Spain and Portugal and provide them with access to scientific production, allowing researchers to analyze the regional content within the context of international scientific production. “The SciELO database, which has been supported by FAPESP since 1998, is one of the first initiatives to offer open access to scientific literature. The agreement with the Web of Knowledge opens up new horizons for SciELO’s mission of increasing the visibility of the science being done in Latin America, Spain and Portugal,” said Carlos Henrique de Brito Cruz, FAPESP’s scientific director. “The partnership with SciELO is not only going to increase the reach of scientific research in developing countries, but will also bring  new depth to our own data. Researchers from all over the world will have new insights, based on the impact of the research that comes from these regions,” said Keith MacGregor, executive vice president of Thomson Reuters. Currently SciELO publishes some 40,000 new papers every year, in more than 900 open access scientific periodicals from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Venezuela.
