Share this on social media:

Thomson Scientific, part of The Thomson Corporation, will provide citation data to Australia’s Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST). The data will support DEST in implementing the Research Quality Framework (RQF).

DEST is the Australian government department responsible for administering the public funding of higher education and for developing and administering higher education policy and programmes.

This partnership follows a recent agreement between Thomson Scientific and the Innovative Research Universities Australia to provide National Citation Reports and University Science Indicators to six member universities. In addition, all the universities in Australia currently have access to Thomson Scientific’s ISI Web of Knowledge.
