PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, March 2 /PRNewswire/ --

- New Citation-based Service Helps Institutions Demonstrate Research Impact

The Healthcare and Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced the launch of InCites(TM) - a customized Web-based solution that provides users with the tools needed to demonstrate the impact and importance of their institution's research. Through InCites, Thomson Reuters empowers its customers with a one-stop system to quantitatively evaluate productivity and influence in order to make strategic decisions.

The launch of InCites marks another Thomson Reuters solution that was developed in direct response to the needs of our customers, said Jim Pringle, vice president of product development at Thomson Reuters. More than ever, academic and government research institutions need to objectively quantify their research performance. Conventionally, gathering this type of information requires extensive research and is extremely time-consuming. Now this information can be found using one intuitive web-based platform - InCites.

InCites provides unique value through the delivery of customer-defined datasets in a web interface for research and analysis. The product enables users to conduct analyses on their own institution's productivity and benchmark its output against peers in both a national or international context. InCites also enables users to create sub-sets around entities such as departments or authors, providing additional analysis at a local level.

This product integrates the same high quality citation content users have come to expect from Thomson Reuters. Datasets derived from Web of Science include bibliographic data and citing articles, current metrics, inbound linking to full records, and the ability to export data and graphs.
