INDUSTRY LEADING DATA QUALITY Web of ScienceSM
Core Values – the Foundation • Authority – Superior Collection Development • The objective of Thomson Reuters editorial process is to serve as a filter, sorting out marginally important journal sources and presenting information for only the most influential publications within 252 disciplines in the sciences, social sciences and arts & humanities. The user is not burdened with a results set that includes material of questionable influence, and therefore does not have to work to create a “high-impact” set of results – the Web of Science has already done this. • Over 1400 Open Access titles currently covered • Depth of Access • The great depth of file available within the Web of Science provides a resource containing information for a huge volume of the world’s most important published research. It is extremely important that records for these quintessential papers are available for search and retrieval within a single resource.
Core Values – the Foundation • Consistency • All journals in Web of Science are indexed “cover to cover” with virtually no breaks in coverage. This includes full papers and reviews, editorial material, book reviews, etc. • Diversity- Truly Multidisciplinary • Collection of influential journal content is presented for all disciplines of the sciences, social sciences, and arts & humanities. The result of our efforts is a large and powerful collection of impact, capable of serving all areas of research and study. • Accuracy • The Web of Science offers a true, searchable and browseable cited reference index. View and select citations from a list of full references and retrieve all papers citing an author’s work simply and accurately.
Core Values and our absolute strength • Cited Reference Index and Searching Possible to search for almost anything • Potentially almost anything can be cited within a journal, conference proceeding, report, book, etc. and all of the cited works are searchable and displayable, regardless of whether the cited work has actually been indexed. This means it is possible to locate articles that are citing items such as Books, Patents, White Papers even legislature.
Core Values • Analysis and Reporting • Provides an instant breakdown of any set of search results. This can provide valuable insight about any particular search, topic, institute, country etc. See a breakdown of the subject areas, identify the top researchers, investigate the collaboration trends • The Citation Report provides and instant summary of the citation statistics of any particular search. Useful for research evaluation or the investigation of the influence of any topic, author, institute etc.
