Thomson Reuters has released the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) and the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) on its InCites platform. This launch is part of a larger strategy to introduce InCites as single environment for research and bibliometric assessment and evaluation. In addition, the data from JCR and ESI will be integrated more prominently into the Web of Science. For an example, check out the "Highly Cited" icon or the "View Journal Information" section on this WoS Full Record page.
Users of the Max Planck Society may access ESI and JCR on both platforms until end of 2014 via the URLs provided below. From January 2015 onwards, both resources will be available via InCites only.

Login Information: IP authentication has been setup for InCites,
but the platform still requires an explicit Sign-In. Therefore a login screen will be displayed when you enter InCites for the first time. From here you may select the "Continue without signing in" link if you do not wish to register for a personal account.

Update: As of end of August 2014, ESI and JCR on InCites will not take IP-subscribed users to a login page. The "Login Information" section in the original blog post has been revised accordingly.
