  Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Enhances Discoverability of
             Scholarly Research with Expanded Book Citation Index

Nearly 50,000 books and over 1 million articles will be connected to the
global research landscape via the Web of Knowledge

PHILADELPHIA, January 22, 2013- The IP & Science business of Thomson Reuters,
the world's leading provider of intelligent information for businesses and
professionals, today announced the expansion of the Book Citation Index^SM
through partnerships with top publishers such as Elsevier, Johns Hopkins
University Press and the University of Chicago Press. These publishers, among
others, will greatly enhance available content in the Index by adding 10,000
books in 2013, increasing the total to nearly 50,000 books from a variety of
commercial, non-profit and university presses worldwide.

The Book Citation Index, available on the world's premier resource for
integrated, multidisciplinary citation research, Thomson Reuters Web of
Knowledge^SM, connects a library's most impactful books in its collection to
powerful new discovery tools, enabling researchers to quickly and easily
identify and access the most relevant books in their field. The Index helps
users seamlessly search across books, journals and conference proceedings, to
discover potential collaborators and glean useful information.

This significant expansion provides greater visibility to authors making
meaningful contributions to their fields and enables scholars to navigate from
a new starting point. Researchers will now have a richer, expanded view of
research within the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities. Over
the course of 2013, users will gain access to nearly 50,000 books and 1
million chapters linked to related journal articles and proceedings indexed
within the Web of Knowledge.

Elsevier, Johns Hopkins University Press, University of Chicago Press, Brill,
University of Illinois Press, McGill Queens University Press and the
International Monetary Fund will join more than 100 publishers that currently
provide content for the Book Citation index.

Following are statements from some of the industry-leading publishers
connected through the Book Citation Index:
