Web of Knowledge, Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports


The session will include a demonstration of recent enhancements to the Web of Knowledge platform and important features of Web of Science and Journal Citation reports including:
- How to find and view vital citation information for an individual or an institution, such as sum of Times Cited, average citations per item and year, and the h-index.
- How to find hidden trends and patterns, gain insight into emerging fields of research, identify leading researchers, institutions, and journals, and trace the history of a particular field of study
- How to keep up-to-date with the information that matters to you by setting up Search and Citation Alerts via email or RSS feeds.
- How to use Journal Citation Reports (JCR) to identify the most appropriate, influential journals in which to publish.
