IDBS and Thomson Reuters announce partnership
IDBS has partnered with the Intellectual Property and Science division of Thomson Reuters to transform how researchers access curated biological content and apply it to their research workflow. With this partnership, the companies have integrated their technology through the ScienceLink scientific content brokerage platform, enabling researchers to access scientific content from Thomson Reuters’ IntegritySM.
ScienceLink, a feature of IDBS’ E-WorkBook enterprise electronic laboratory notebook, enables users to launch a single query to search and retrieve data from internal systems and leading licensed external scientific data sources. Thomson Reuters Integrity is a source of reliable, detailed information gathered across multiple disciplines that supports successful drug research and development. With the integration, research teams can now search literature and curated sources via the Cortellis for Informatics Targets API directly within E-WorkBook. Where previously users had to manually collate information, they can now integrate all their available knowledge, accessing data and exporting it back to E-WorkBook with a single mouse click.
Commenting on the partnership, Neil Kipling, founder and CEO of IDBS, said: ‘It is crucial for researchers to have a solid knowledge base of the results of previous studies in order to direct future investigations. Previously, scientists would need to search in various systems and collate data manually. Now they can access insightful data at the right point in their research, presenting considerable savings in time and effort.’
