Web of Science is one of the most frequently used databases for finding scholarly, peer reviewed articles. It is multidisciplinary and indexes over 12,000 of the highest impact journals and conference proceedings worldwide in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities with coverage from 1900 to the present.
Web of Science tracks who is citing who and provides the ability to navigate forward or backward in time from a relevant article – easily expanding the discovery of other important articles for a research topic. The analyze feature enables the identification of core journals or researchers. Citations are easily exportable to most bibliographic management programs.
You can find this database on the Databases A-Z page of the Library Website listed as “Web of Knowledge / Web of Science”.
