During an Event to be Held at the National Press Club on 2 April

PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Scientific, part of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC) and leading provider of information solutions to the worldwide research and business communities, today announced it will honor Australia's preeminent researchers at the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday, 2 April, 2008.

"These Global Research Days are hosted by Thomson Scientific to recognize research excellence in countries and regions that have demonstrated they are leading the world through innovation in their respective fields," said Jeroen Prinsen, Australia sales director, Thomson Scientific. "Thomson is a major supporter of the Australian research community. In 2007, our data shows Australia ranked among the top ten nations for the influence of its scientific papers. That's an incredible achievement."

Thomson will invite the most prominent Australian researchers across disciplines. The Thomson Research Award is presented based on a quantitative selection process which identifies the number of citations that an academic research paper has, thus reflecting its impact and influence on the given subject and importance attributed to it by subsequent research.

Australian Research Day will provide an opportunity for the research community, peak councils, business and industry, and government agencies to discuss moves by the new Government to overhaul innovation and research systems. The morning's agenda is being developed with the participation of key industry specialists and will include a presentation to a number of outstanding Australian researchers based on the quality of their research output.

The session will conclude with a lunch time keynote address from Professor Alan Robson, Chair of the Group of Eight and Vice Chancellor of The University of Western Australia. His talk will focus on Australia's innovation strengths, emphasising the importance of basic research and exploring new options for assessing research quality.

Mr. Mark Garlinghouse, Thomson Scientific's vice president of Asia Pacific, said: "We are glad to facilitate an occasion whereby the research community can meet to consider the issues associated with the assessment and measurement of research quality. Our company is part of the research community, and it is important to us that our systems best meet the needs of the Government and the tertiary sector."

Representatives from leading research and policy organizations in Australia will attend this one-of-a-kind event. The Thomson Scientific Research Awards are presented globally, with previous presentations held in Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, India, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Japan and China.
