The Book Citation Index, within Web of Science • Science and Social Science and Humanities-- coverage includes publications back to 2005 • Content will be comprised of scholarly books, both electronic and print, that present fully referenced articles of original research, or reviews of the literature. • Both multi-authored and single-authored • Series and non-series • Encyclopedias, Reference Books generally not included, though graduate level texts may be considered. • Full indexing of Books and individually-authored Book Chapters. • Capture of all fundamental bibliographicinformation as well as author cited references.
Commercial, Society, University press participation -- • Our Acquisitions efforts are still in full stride and havebeen under way for some time. • We first approached Commercial publishers, such as Wiley-Blackwell and Springer, given the sheer volume of material which they produce along with our solid, longstanding relationships with this group. • Society and University presses followed, and these groups are particularly important to our Social Science and Arts & Humanities coverage. • Links to full text from the Book Citation Index is a priorityas well, as it is for all Web of Science content. • We will of course employ primary mechanisms suchas the DOI and OpenUrl. Links from OPAC systems as well. • We are also in conversations with e-bookaggregators to establish direct links to collections.
