Russia’s Ministry of Education and Science partners with Clarivate Analytics to advance its research impact
Web of Science access expands to 1,600 institutions across Russia.
LONDON, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Clarivate Analytics, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, in partnership with the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, expanded its Web of Science coverage from 300 to 1,600 institutions across the Russian Federation. This will empower its scientists and prepare a new generation of scholars with the needed tools and advice to advance their research and dramatically increase global impact.
With a multi-year agreement in place between Clarivate and the Russian Ministry, academic institutions now have full access to the Web of Science, the premier web-based platform for scientific and scholarly research, to better inform their efforts and connect with similar researchers throughout the world. This includes historical data going back to 1975 as well as the unique Russian Science Citation Index, for a number of state public libraries. It also includes the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is growing to over 7,500 journal titles, and releasing a 10-year archive for the index later this year. Clarivate recently announced this commitment to investing in its industry-leading products, one of which is the Web of Science.
Access to the Web of Science allows Russian universities and institutes to co-operate with world leaders of science on an equal footing, helping them see the entire landscape of research results and getting well-versed in what both Russian and foreign colleagues are doing.
“We are delighted to announce this strategic partnership with the Russian Ministry of Education,” said Viji Krishnan, Global Head of Emerging Markets at Clarivate Analytics. “Under this agreement, Clarivate is providing Russia with critical research and analytics designed to facilitate the lifecycle of innovation across the entire country.
