Guide to the use of the electronically available database.
Last Updated: Aug 29, 2012
Citation indexes allow searching of journal articles by author, subject term, and journal title, like other indexes. The difference is in the ability to search the cited reference list or bibliographies of the journal articles. This enables a searcher to find the articles cited by journal article author (the historical origin of the article) and the articles that are citing this particular journal article (current impact in the research literature of this article). It also permits the comparison of reference lists to find articles that share common sources.
On the Search All tab, click on Databases A to Z to locate the three citation indexes are now available on Web of Science, Social Sciences Citation Index, Science Citation Index, and Arts and Humanitites Citation Index. Click on the Web of Science tab. All three indexes will be searched by default unless one or more specific indexes are unchecked in the Current Limits area. Unlimited number of users.
