Web of Knowledge workshop in Barcelona

Hi there, hope you had a good weekend. Here's another interesting thing coming up soon at the PRBB.

You may know that in Spain, all research centres, universities and hospitals have free access to the Web of Knowledge through the FECYT (Spanish foundation for science and technology).

The Web of Knowledge is something all scientists are (or should be) familiar with. It is a dynamic, integrated environment that provides them with one single source for high quality scientific content and the tools to access, analyze, and manage research information (articles from scientific journals, books, patents, etc.) - an essential task for researchers.

The Web of knowledge is due to start a new interface next January 1st, 2008. The FECYT is organising two formative sessions in Barcelona to explain the use of the Web of Knowledge databases and its new interface. One of the sessions will take place at the PRBB conference hall on Tuesday, November 13th, from 10am to 1,30pm. The previous day at the same time there will be another session at the conference hall of the ‘Edifici de França’ of the UPF (Estació de França).

If you are around and interested in learning more about the Web of Knowledge, please reserve a place by sending an email to
