Abstract/Summary In late 2006 The University of Western Australia launched Socrates, an online application designed to draw data from key research information systems, in order for the University to prepare portfolios for the Research Quality Framework (RQF). Socrates also incorporates bibliographic and citation data from Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science (WoS) using the web services interface (API). This presentation focuses upon the utilisation of Thomson Reuters’ data within Socrates. The benefits of importing Thomson Reuters’ data, including reducing the workload associated with the annual HERDC publications collection, and using imported research tags to trace the level of publication within specific disciplines, are explored. The presentation also outlines the technical problems faced by Socrates with regards to matching citation data imported from the WOS to data from the UWA Publications Database. Overall, it is argued that by drawing data from the WOS, Socrates is able to provide a detailed analysis of UWA’s indexed publications at a university, organisational unit and individual level, thereby shedding significant light on the University’s research output performance.
