ISI Web of KnowledgeSM provides an advanced gateway to the world’s greatest collection of academic and scientific research. The next generation of ISI Web of Knowledge, developed extensively through user-focused design and development collaborations and powered by a new graphical user interface, will soon enable users of all types and experience to intuitively search, discover, analyze, write, publish, and evaluate premier scholarly research. Patented behind-the-scenes technology unites with current indexing capabilities in order to form innovative research workflow pathways to relevant information and sources and contribute to ongoing powerful and flexible content delivery, expanded search capabilities and enhanced analytical functionality.

Designed to address the unique demands of a diverse, global user base in the next-generation Web era, this “new face of research” will prove easy for novices to navigate, while continuing to provide the extensive array of powerful applications seasoned users appreciate.
