The Spanish Foundation for the Science and the Technology FECYT has been working in a better aprovechamiento of the available electronic resources for the scientific community and Spanish researcher, because of which has carried out an exhaustive analysis of the utilisation of the Databases of the Web of Knowledge. Fruit of this analysis has detected that some of these Bases have a very low percentage of consumption.
Taking into account this information, has arrived to a new agreement with Thomson Reuters, more in accordance with the true needs and uses of the scientific community, that has translated in a new licence of access to the databases of the Web of Knowledge. This new licence will be valid until December of 2013 and will allow the access to the most used Databases by the researchers as they are the Web of Science, Journal Citation Report and Essential Science Indicators.
From the 15 of September, the access to the BBDD cancelled realise on the same platform of research. However, from this date only can access to the previous data to the 31 of December of 2009. These same data will be available from January of 2011 through other channels that FECYT will put to his disposal.
Will be able to conserve the alerts and strategies of research stored in the personal profile of Current Content Connect. For this the researcher has to realise a manual process to regenerate the alert again in Web of Science. It does not exist any form to realise the migration of alerts and estratégias of research of automatic form. The sitema of alerts has been designed so that only the person that created it can modify it or delete it.
The rest of alerts and strategies of research of Derwent Innovation Index and Medline will not be able to regenerate.
