Web of Science Now Available With Summon Web-Scale Discovery Service
Serials Solutions, a business unit of ProQuest LLC, announced the integration of content from the Thomson Reuters' subscription-based Web of Science service with its Summon web-scale discovery service. This integration enables display of cited-by counts in Summon search results for ISI Web of Knowledge subscribers to highlight the highest impact articles for researchers. The Summon service will also use citation counts as an element of relevance ranking.
The Web of Science cited-by data is valuable and respected by both novice and experienced researchers alike, offering easy access to related and seminal works. Web of Science cited-by counts are also being used by the Summon service to assist with relevancy rankings. With access and integration of this information into the Summon web-scale discovery service, users can be even more confident that they will get the most relevant results immediately upon performing a search.
Web of Science data has been added to the Summon service unified index, allowing researchers to quickly see search results ranked by relevance. Adding Web of Science data to the index is a further demonstration of Serials Solutions’ commitment to not force researchers to execute a federated search or wade through hybrid results to find what they need.
The Summon service enables a familiar web-searching experience of the full breadth of content found in library collections—from books and videos to eresources such as articles. It aims to bring researchers back to library content and resources by providing an easy-to-use discovery tool.
