GIA Web Site Called an ‘Important Resource’

The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) has selected the Gemological Institute of America’s Web site (www.gia.edu) as an important resource for researchers, scientists, and scholars. ISI will include GIA’s Web site in its premium collection of evaluated scholarly Web sites, “Current Web Contents.”

According to ISI, GIA’s Web site was selected through “careful evaluation criteria” and judged on such factors as authority, accuracy, currency, navigation and design, applicability and content, scope, audience level, and quality of writing.

ISI (www.isinet.com) is widely recognized as the premier database of scientific publications, and its print and online products are used by libraries and researchers worldwide. GIA’s quarterly journal, Gems & Gemology, was recently accepted into the ISI journal database.
