Web of Science: Step by Step

  Searching the Web of Science

We will practice searching by topic (keywords) and by cited references.

Topic Search:    ("uv-vis" or "ultraviolet-visible") and spectro*

                 Refine options are on the left. Here are some to try:
                   Search within the results--> word catalys* must occur somewhere in the article record.   

                 Refine by article type= review article--->
                                                         Research Areas  - include or exclude
                                                         Publication Years  

  • Web of Science orders the results list by publication date.  You may change the order if you wish.  What happens when you use the "times cited" option?

  • When you are viewing a single record             

                Author names are hot linked, click to see other papers by this author.
