Web of Science Training

Web of Science

The Web of ScienceSM (formerly Web of Knowledge) is today’s premier research platform, helping you quickly find, analyze, and share information in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. You get integrated access to high quality literature through a unified platform that links a wide variety of content with one seamless search.

Whether you are new to Web of Science or have been using it for years, the interface may have changed since you last used it, or there may be a new or improved feature you have not had time to explore.  As you return to your research this summer, you may find it helpful to register for a free, online training session to refresh your skills.  These live sessions are led by the Web of Science Customer Education team and you will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Web of Science also offers 2-6 minute YouTube videos that demonstrate citation mapping, journal citation reports, exporting records, saving searches, creating citation alerts, and more.  The length and format of the videos also makes them easy to embed into your Moodle courses and share with graduate students.

To get started, this video will help you create a citation alert.  When you create an alert, you will receive an e-mail any time a newly published paper cites the work.  This is a great tool for keeping track of who is citing your work, or other works in your field.  Another option popular among researchers is Google Scholar alerts.

As always, feel free to contact me (or your subject librarian) with any questions.
