Web of Science Database Introduction


Web of Science

contains multidisciplinary coverage of over 10,000 scholarly  journals in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities. You may limit your search to science coverage.

This database is also a citation index

A citation index is a bibliographic tool in print or electronic format that lists all referenced or cited source items published in a given time span. The tool  tracks the historical development -- backwards and forwards in time -- of an idea or given topic within the literature.

       Cited reference searching: Through a cited reference search, you can discover how a known idea or innovation has been confirmed, applied, improved, extended, or corrected. (Go forward in time from a known relevant article)

Related Records:  Find similar records based on shared references and keywords from other articles indexes by Web of Science.

       Citation Maps:  A Citation Map is a graphical representation that shows the citation relationships (cited references and citing articles) between a paper and other papers using various visualization tools and techniques.

       Analyze Tool:  Extract data values from a field that you select from the list. After you click Analyze, the system produces a report showing the values in ranked order.
