Philadelfia and London, (PRNewswire) The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters announced today it was selected by Alzheimer’s Research UK, the Institute of Physics, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide essential data and insight into ground-breaking scientific initiatives led by these organizations. These partnerships will shed new light on the current scientific environments in multiple fields, inform research, and influence policy decision making. Thomson Reuters was selected to provide citation data, unify disparate information sources, and apply insight based on its unique capabilities in evaluating, selecting, and analyzing scientific and scholarly data. For a current look at the state of the UK’s research in Alzheimer’s disease and physics, Thomson Reuters performed in-depth bibliometric evaluations to measure and compare performance and provide snapshots of where the UK stands in each field. These analyses were used in Alzheimer’s Research UK’s Defeating Dementia report and the Institute of Physics’ Bibliometric evaluation and international benchmarking of the UK’s physics research report, where objective Thomson Reuters data is helping to influence government policies and contribute to wider discussions of research in these fields. Thomson Reuters expertise also helps move research forward. Global Health Connect, a unique online resource for tackling the explosion of Big Data for global health, is under development in partnership with the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Technology Transfer and BIO Ventures for Global Health. Once complete, Global Health Connect will support the development of treatments for neglected diseases. These recent initiatives are backed by the history of trusted data Thomson Reuters has collected and curated. For forty years, the National Science Foundation has relied on Thomson Reuters citation data to produce its Science and Engineering Indicators, a volume of records comprising the major high-quality, quantitative data on the U.S. and international science and engineering enterprise. Independently-analyzed Thomson Reuters data is also the basis for the report’s Academic Research & Development chapter, one of the document’s seven major components.
