The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading provider of intelligent information for academic and research communities, today announced that all eight universities in New Zealand have extended access to the Thomson Reuters Web of Science® database for three additional years. This ensures researchers, administrators, faculty and students in New Zealand universities have access to the highest quality, curated, multidisciplinary scientific literature. This extension marks the tenth year of their partnership with Thomson Reuters.
“The Web of Science is the definitive resource for global academic research, as demonstrated by the strong endorsement from all eight universities in New Zealand,” said Jeroen Prinsen, Senior Director – Australasia, Thomson Reuters. “We remain committed to supporting New Zealand’s increasingly international focus in its higher education and research efforts by providing the necessary tools to enable and accelerate research, discovery, collaboration and innovation.”
The eight universities in New Zealand are the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, Massey University, University of Otago, Victoria University of Wellington and University of Waikato.
“The Web of Science, and the non-proprietary databases that Massey links to through Web of Science, provide an essential role in supporting research and research-informed teaching and learning. I am delighted to continue our partnership with Thomson Reuters,” said John Redmayne, University Librarian at Massey University. Massey has the complete backfile of the Web of Science back to 1900. Redmayne acknowledged the renewal continues the critical role of this resource as a primary research solution.
Web of Science is a Thomson Reuters Scientific & Scholarly Research solution that is known as the world’s most trusted citation index for leading scholarly literature.
