Foundational past, visionary future.
The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) builds on the work of Dr. Eugene Garfield – the original founder and a pioneer of information science. Named after the company he founded – the forerunner of the Web of Science Group – ISI was re-established in 2018 and serves as a home for analytic expertise, guided by his legacy and adapted to respond to technological advancements.
Our global team of industry-recognized experts focus on the development of existing and new bibliometric and analytical approaches, whilst fostering collaborations with partners and academic colleagues across the global research community.
Today, as the ‘university’ of the Web of Science Group, ISI both:
“The newly energized ISI will be a place where we house our expertise, experience and deep thinking that drives our editorial rigor, our policy and partnerships, rankings and analytics. From the institute we will work with and for the research community – researchers, publishers, governments, industry bodies, libraries and funders will all be welcome. The institute will be both the heart and soul of our group and the brains behind our most complex thinking to solve the problems of our community.”
The latest report from the ISI reviews how researchers, analysts and research organisations use Web of Science data, drawing on the content of the database to show how often and in what ways the data underpins the global research base.
The robust evaluation and curation of our data make the Web of Science Core Collection the world’s most trusted publisher-independent global citation database.
