PS: it is strange to see that Thomson used pictures which are close to those that Elsevier took some years ago with its “Never underestimate the importance of a librarian” campaign, means some scientists working on the field: ocean, ice, archeology, etc.
Thomson Reuters has launched a research management system called Research In View to provide universities with a comprehensive view of institutional performance
The solution aggregates and standardises data from disparate sources to provide a unified database and analytic interface for managing, searching and reporting on university activities and performance.
Developed by the company’s research analytics business in consultation with university administrators worldwide, it aims to enable universities anywhere in the world to track and associate people with projects, strategic goals and with traditional measures such as classes taught or published journal articles.
My opinion: to compare with Elsevier SciVal?

WoK here stands for Web of Knowledge and is not a cooking device from China!
The prestigious swiss institution has chosen the Thomson product after a bidding process as the main point of access to scientific literature for the researchers.
According, Information World Review: 04/02/11
It is the new Thomson’s (please use Thomson-Reuters now) communication campaign… that reminds a little the “Never underestimate a librarian” campaign by Elsevier some years ago.
As the Butterfly Effect, Thomson believes that “The right information in the right hands leads to amazing things“… Info-pros do as well…

In business. In government. In the world. That’s the Knowledge Effect
Tara Breton, a librarian for a healthcare consulting company, explains how it would be great if InfoDesk would succeed to build an unbrella platform to search drug profiles trough the Big 5 (Thomson Pharma, Prous Integrity, Pharmaprojects, ADIS R&D Insight, IMS R&D Focus).
“A single umbrella search system with a single output product that combines all those pipeline databases into one simplistic program? Really? This is what InfoDesk has decided to undertake.
The company purchased a drug pipeline integration platform from Elsevier that it is currently redeveloping for release early next year. (..)
what exactly will the output resemble? Routine users of the Big 5 databases will understand the inference here. No one system outputs the same data fields and the same number.
I myself would love to have a single umbrella search system for my organization.
It would mean training users on just one simplified platform, one manner of searching, and provide better desktop access in a standardized language where the output will be systematic. The time savings would easily argue paying extra for such a product.”
