Web of Science Citation Big Data Workshops – June 2017.

Date of news item: 23 May 2017

Clarivate Analytics wish to invite you to participate in one of 3 different 1-day workshops focused on Web of Science citation data, APIs, and system integration. These will be interactive, lively, and informal sessions where the Clarivate Analytics Web of Science team, along with customers and partners, will discuss the Web of Science citation network as a research dataset, and share examples and experiences using APIs to integrate Web of Science data with other systems. Plus, use cases of innovation and research projects using Web of Science data from around the world will be presented including both an overview of emerging trends in big data citation analytics and the ways that Clarivate Analytics are leveraging and embracing these technologies.

The value of the Web of Science Core Collection as a search and discovery tool is well-established at thousands of research institutions worldwide. But the use of its high-quality metadata outside of the platform for big data citation-based studies is still emerging. When researchers need to study science, technology, and innovation trends, they turn to the Web of Science Core Collection as the only comprehensive citation source to provide over 100 years of consistent, global publication data.

Please Join us on one of these days:

  • Wednesday, 14 June, 2017- Copenhagen, Denmark, Aalborg University Copenhagen
  • Tuesday, 20 June, 2017 – Lausanne, Switzerland – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL)
  • Thursday, 22 June, 2017 – London, United Kingdom – British Library

Each workshop will run from approximately 10:30-17:00 and include discussions led by experts from Clarivate Analytics as well as presentations from UK and European researchers working on citation-based big data projects. Coffee, tea, snacks, lunch, and drinks will be provided.

The planned agendas include:

  • Introductions & networking with coffee and snacks
  • Web of Science citation data introduction and overview by Clarivate Analytics
  • Reports of citation-based research projects from guest speakers
  • Lunch & networking
  • Use cases of Web of Science data in action from guest speakers
