Philadelphia, PA USA-London UK-Princeton, NJ February 25, 2004 - Today,
Thomson ISI and NEC Laboratories America (NEC) announced their collaboration
to create a comprehensive, multidisciplinary citation index for Web-based
scholarly resources. The new Web Citation IndexTM will combine a suite of
technologies developed by NEC, including "autonomous citation indexing"
tools from NEC's CiteSeer environment, with the capabilities underlying ISI
Web of KnowledgeSM. Thomson ISI editors will carefully monitor the quality
of this new resource to ensure all indexed material meets the Thomson ISI
high-quality standards.
