Web of Science and Google Scholar Links.

Date of news item: 25 March 2014

Thomson Reuters have advised it is expected that Institutions subscribing to the Web of Science Service for UK Education will have Google Scholar links in Web of Science Core Collection enabled by April 2014. This is being done on a rolling basis and those Institutions who presently do not have these links enabled should expect to see them by April 2014. These links will be available for all Institutions who have access to Web of Science Core Collection.

Thomson Reuters have confirmed that they are not sharing any holding information or customer data with Google apart from the anonymized IP address of the Institution which is being shared only for the purpose of linking.
