ISI Launches ISI Proceedings 2.0

ISI has announced the release of ISI Proceedings version 2.0, which now includes cited references for records dating to 1999. The addition of cited references permits users to link to the full records of cited papers as well as to identify other papers that build on the same area of research, based on their shared citations.

The coverage within ISI Proceedings version 2.0 will further be expanded to include meeting abstracts, particularly from biomedical and chemistry conferences. In addition, the service will significantly increase book coverage and the number of proceedings indexed annually.

ISI Proceedings version 2.0 will also offer the same search capabilities that are found in ISI Web of Science version 5.0, including the following:

  • Combine Searches—Allows users to create set combination searches to refine search results
  • Advanced Search—Enables experienced searchers to conduct a complex search for more targeted results
  • Search History—Displays searches for the current session. Users can also save and retrieve search histories for future sessions.
Subscribers to ISI Proceedings version 2.0 will be able to seamlessly link from the record in ISI Proceedings to the cited articles in ISI Web of Science, the publisher's full-text article, SFX, and library holdings. Additionally, the service will offer links to ISI Current Contents Connect, BIOSIS Previews, INSPEC, and CAB ABSTRACTS.

ISI Proceedings version 2.0 will be available in August.
