London, U.K.  December 7, 2023. Clarivate Plc (NYSE:CLVT), a global leader in connecting people and organizations to intelligence they can trust to transform their world, today announced it has enriched ProQuestTM Dissertations & Theses Citation Index, integrating over 172 million cited references from ProQuest™ Dissertations & Theses Global within the Web of ScienceTM platform and interconnecting both platforms.

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Citation Index opens new possibilities in the research workflow for students and researchers, enabling them to explore the development of a topic across varied, multidisciplinary research outputs or to look back at the research foundation of post-graduate works. This enhancement deepens the connection between published and unpublished scholarship, enriching the entire research experience.

The solution enables students and researchers to discover new research sources on diverse, novel or niche topics and easily expand their discovery to related works. As new cited references are captured, dissertations and theses will accrue citations from indexed research, helping users understand the impact or influence of dissertations and theses to scholarship over time.

Emmanuel Thiveaud, Senior Vice President, Research and Analytics, Academia & Government at Clarivate ™ said: “Since we first added our expansive collection of early-career scholarly content from ProQuest to the Web of Science, we have been working diligently to enrich the integrated solution. The addition of linked, cited references to this comprehensive, connected content will streamline the discovery of emerging areas of research, spark new ideas and enrich the research experience.

“At Clarivate, we are committed to supporting academic institutions to advance knowledge through research and education, continuously enhancing our trusted content and best-in-class tools that drive research excellence and student success.”

ProQuest  Dissertations & Theses Citation Index first launched in July. It enables discovery of more than 5.7 million post-graduate works from over 4,100 institutions across 60+ countries/regions, alongside journal articles, conference papers, preprints and other scholarly sources, all within a single platform. It also offers access to more than 3 million full text documents found on the ProQuest platform. It empowers students and researchers to conduct more comprehensive literature reviews by incorporating unpublished scholarship and diverse perspectives. Researchers can also showcase their early career scholarship to peers and evaluators by claiming their dissertation or thesis to their Web of Science Researcher Profile.
