Thomson Reuters partnered with the Chinese Academy of Sciences to host the Chinese Science Citation Database on the Web of Science. Fully integrated and searchable within Web of Science, this database covers approximately 1,200 top scholarly publications from China, with nearly 2 million records in total.

The Chinese Science Citation Database was the first non-English product available within Web of Science. Web of Science now supports Unicode — expanding search capabilities beyond English to character languages and empowering Chinese Science Citation Database and other Web of Science™ Core Collection users with new customization options. This upgrade makes it possible to present much of the bibliographic information in both Chinese (Simplified) and English
