Project Euclid

Project Euclid's mission is to advance scholarly communication in the field of theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics. Project Euclid is designed to address the unique needs of low-cost independent and society journals. Through a collaborative partnership arrangement, these publishers join forces and participate in an online presence with advanced functionality, without sacrificing their intellectual or economic independence or commitment to low subscription prices. Full-text searching, reference linking, interoperability through the Open Archives Initiative, and long-term retention of data are all important components of the project.

The end result is a vibrant online information community for independent and society journals. This will assure that mathematics and statistics will continue to benefit from a healthy balance of commercial enterprises, scholarly societies, and independent publishers.

Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library and is jointly managed by Cornell and the Duke University Press.

Start-up funding was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

UNRISD (The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development)

The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) is an autonomous research institute within the UN system that undertakes multidisciplinary research and policy analysis on the social dimensions of contemporary development issues.

Through our work we aim to ensure that social equity, inclusion and justice are central to development thinking, policy and practice. To this end, we:

focus on the often neglected social content and impacts of development processes and the role of social institutions, relations and actors in shaping development policies and pathways;

engage researchers, policy makers and civil society actors from around the world in generating and sharing knowledge, in order to shape policy within and beyond the UN system;

mobilize and strengthen the research capacity of individuals and institutions in developing countries through collaborative inquiry; and

provide a space for the exchange of ideas, giving prominence to marginalized viewpoints, often challenging mainstream development thinking and offering alternative policy options.

UNRISD was established in 1963 as an autonomous space within the UN system for the conduct of policy-relevant, cutting-edge research on social development that is pertinent to the work of the United Nations Secretariat; regional commissions and specialized agencies; and national institutions.




Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) Web of Knowledge is today's premier research platform for information in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities.

Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge started with a single idea...and a man who could see the possibilities of that idea. In 1955, Dr. Eugene Garfield revolutionized scientific research with his concept of citation indexing and searching.

Decades later, technology finally caught up with his concept and Web of Science® brought Web linking and citation searching together to create a powerful and versatile research platform. Web of Knowledge was the next logical step — bringing together a full range of data, tools and technology in one, integrated, ever-evolving resource.
