Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports

Please join me online today for a class about Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports!

Web of Science is a multidisciplinary database that indexes over 10000 journals and offers powerful search options, including:

  • refining results by subject, author, source, year or country
  • tracking how often an article has been cited and the articles that have cited it
  • creating search alerts via email or RSS

Its companion tool, Journal Citation Reports can be used to find the impact factor of a journal to identify highly cited journals in a discipline.
