Thomson Reuters is working with Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) to integrate the SciELO Citation Index into the Web of Knowledge.

The partners say that the initiative will bring greater visibility and improved access to research from emerging economies, particularly Latin America, the Caribbean, South Africa, and developed Ibero-America areas including Spain and Portugal.The SciELO Citation Index will now seamlessly connect to the Web of Science. This will enable researchers to review and analyse relevant regional content along top-tier international literature within the Web of Knowledge.

'There is a large amount of valuable scientific content generated and published by journals from emerging regions, such as Latin America, the Caribbean and South Africa, and it is important that this work is visible and accessible globally,' said Abel Packer, SciELO director.

The SciELO Citation Index will include approximately 650 titles and more than four million cited references from open access journals from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa, Spain and Venezuela. The addition of SciELO to Web of Knowledge will follow a similar model to that of the Chinese Science Citation Database, which has been hosted within the Web of Knowledge since 2008, and the planned 2014 launch of a journal database featuring Korean scholarly literature.
