Conference Proceedings Citation Index from Thomson Web of Science

Every year, thousands of professionals in the sciences and social sciences gather to refresh their skills, network and collaborate with their colleagues, and learn about the latest developments in their field.

At these worldwide gatherings — whether they are conferences, symposia, seminars, colloquia, workshops or conventions — participants present the ideas and paths that will shape the future of research. The proceedings that result are frequently referred to and highly cited in subsequent research papers.

Conferences are the place where ideas are often first presented and begin their development. Their proceedings are published in both books and journals, and each format appeals to different areas of research:
“Conference proceedings published in books are known to be a popular vehicle for scholarly communication in the physical sciences, particularly engineering. However, in fast-moving areas of the biomedical sciences, conference proceedings are more typically published in journals. In the life sciences, for example, a rapid dissemination of critical information is essential and journals provide the best medium for this.”
