Downtime for Web of Science & Endnote Web: Sunday June 17

July 15th, 2011 by

A major re-design to Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge search interface will be implemented this weekend. This impacts BIOSIS Previews, INSPEC, Web of Science, and Endnote Web. (Journal Citation Reports will be changed later this year.) The most important change will allow unlimited search retrievals instead of only retrieving less than 100,000 results. All large search retrievals will now be immediately available for combining and refining.

DOWNTIME NOTICE: Thomson Reuters will be performing maintenance to Web of Knowledge, EndNote Web, and ResearcherID this coming Sunday, July 17th beginning at 6:00 AM PDT. This maintenance is expected to last approximately 12 hours (until 6:00 PM PDT). During this time, there may be disruption of service and access to these products, including Web of Knowledge Personalization.
