Overview of Session
  • What is citation indexing
  • Why is it useful
  • How to use it on Web of Science
  • Citation searching on other products
  • Getting full text, setting up alerts and organising your references with RefWorks or EndNote
citation indexing
Citation indexing
  • Invented in 1961 by Eugene Garfield at the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)
  • Scientific abstracting/indexing services began in nineteenth century, recording author/title/publisher/source etc for articles and indexing them
  • Garfield added details of all references quoted in the article and indexed them too, publishing results as Science Citation Index (SCI) – originally only in printed form
  • Allowed for many new ways of linking articles
exciting new ways
Exciting new ways
  • For an article you’ve read:
  • Find earlier articles that one was based on
  • Find later articles which quoted it
  • Find related articles which quote some of the same references as this one
  • So you can trace the progress of ideas backwards, sideways and, uniquely, forwards in time

And
  • You can identify which journals publish most highly-cited articles – the notorious ‘impact factor’
  • Publishing your work in high-impact journals is important in getting funding!
originally
Originally
  • Using the paper Science Citation Index was hard work
  • Now, the electronic version is much quicker to use
  • But can be complex and confusing – important to understand what it does and doesn’t do
  • Caveat emptor!
  • SCI now has competitors, but all work slightly differently – e.g. Scopus, Google Scholar
  • The basic concept of linking documents which cite each other, and ranking them according to the frequency with which they do so, underpins search engines like Google

  • Wikipedia is a good source – try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citation_index
in the real world
In the real world
  • Science Citation Index is now part of Web of Science, which includes Social Science Citation Index and Arts and Humanities Citation Index
  • Web of Science is a product offered on the platform Web of Knowledge (WoK), alongside other products including Journal Citation Reports which gives journal impact factors.
  • Direct access available on Oxford network: use Athens password outside Oxford
  • Athens registration: http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/athens/
related references
Related References
  • Moves your research laterally
  • Displays a list of articles whose cited reference lists include at least one of the sources cited by the original (parent) article
  • Ranked by the number of shared references; those sharing the most references are displayed first
  • Excellent for retrieving lots of results, but will require some sorting to weed out irrelevant articles
citation alerts
Citation Alerts
  • Use this feature to register your interest in particular article(s)
  • You will then receive an email every time any of those articles is cited by a new addition to the database
  • One you have located an article you want to add to your list, click on the Create Citation Alert button
  • You can review your list by choosing View My Cited Articles List from the WoK homepage

journal citation reports jcr
Journal citation reports (JCR)
  • For Sciences and Social Sciences
  • This is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor will help you evaluate a journal's relative importance, especially when you compare it to others in the same field
  • From within a record you can click on Journal Citation Reports to view the impact factor of the journal
  • Or you can view and compare impact factors of all journals within your subject area
isi highlycited com
ISI Highlycited.com
  • Allows you to search for a specific researcher and see how highly cited their work is
  • Use the View Publications List button to see details of their published works, and of articles citing them
  • Keep in mind that this feature is quite new and only 250 authors are included fopr each of 21 subject areas

Other services offering citation searching - SCOPUS
  • Sciences and Social Sciences
  • Results include journal articles and web pages
  • Each reference to a paper shows the number of times an article has been cited
