WEB OF KNOWLEDGE PLATFORM YOUR GUIDE THROUGH THE WORLD OF RESEARCH Vojislav Milovanovic Novi sad, May 2012
Agenda Web of Knowledge platform Web of Science – philosophy, added value Web of Science journal selection process Search and Navigation in the Web of Knowledge Book Citation Index Questions, comments
Web of Knowledge is Thomson Reuters’ core platform for Scientific & Scholarly Research services. Web of Knowledge includes a single de-duplicated database (>91 million records) of all the resources and it includes a unique subject classification scheme across all records. Web of Knowledge is integrated with other Thomson Reuters productivity tools such as EndNote Web and ResearcherID to support the entire research cycle. Web of Knowledge 20 million individual users 150,000 users every day > 3,500 institutional users > 23,000 journals > 90 million records
Web of Knowledge resources include: Web of ScienceWeb of Science (with Conference Proceedings) BIOSIS Previews BIOSIS Citation Index Biological Abstracts Zoological Record Derwent Innovations Index Journal Citation Reports Essential Science Indicators Chinese Science Citation Database FSTA - Food Science & Technology Abstracts CAB Abstracts MEDLINE INSPEC EndNote Web ResearcherID Web of Knowledge 20 million individual users 150,000 users every day > 3,500 institutional users > 23,000 journals > 90 million records
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CITATION INDEX Concept first developed by Dr Eugene Garfield –S–Science, 1955 The Science Citation Index (1961) –S–SCI print (1960’s) –O–On-line with SciSearch in the 1970’s –C–CD-ROM in the 1980’s –W–Web interface (1997) Web of Science Content enhanced: –S–Science Citation Index – Expanded (SCI-E) –S–Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) –A–Arts & Humanities Citation Index (AHCI) –C–Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) –B–Book Citation Index (2011)
WHY THE WEB OF SCIENCE? Research information and assessment –Efficient, Quality Current Awareness within all disciplines –Where should I publish? –Citation-tracking capabilities across decades –Comparison, Allotment of grants, Finding peer institutions Compare worldwide research using transparent and globally accepted criteria –Creating analyses based on global standards –Being part of the world’s global research community Research trends and output expertise on –Country level, Institutional level, Personal/Author level, Journal level

Search Page and Limits
Search Fields Topic Searches all words (no stop words) in Article titles, Abstracts, Author Keywords, KeyWords Plus fields. “white oak” or “quercus alba” Vitamin A Author Searches any author on the paper Bergstrom CT Wallen K* Researcher ID Searches Researcher ID numbers associated with author profiles on A Group Author Group or organization credited with authorship Aberdeen Lung Cancer Group Beta Cell Biology Consortium Publication Name Journal title Czech Journal of Food Sciences Progress in Brain Research Publication Year Year article was published Address Searches abbreviated author affiliations Emory Univ, Dept Biol, Atlanta, GA USA Funding Agency Searches funding agency name Australian Research Council Grant number Searches grant number P01* DP
Truncation SymbolRetrieves * Zero or more characters *carbon* carbon, hydrocarbon, polycarbonate $ Zero or one character colo$r color, colour ? One character only en?oblast entoblast, endoblast Note: the $ cannot be used within quotation marks (i.e. “colo$r theory”) when lemmatization is turned on.
Boolean Operators All search terms must occur to be retrieved. TOPIC: “stem cell*” AND lymphoma Retrieves documents that contain the phrase stem cell and the term lymphoma. This is equivalent to searching “stem cell*” lymphoma Any one of the search terms must occur to be retrieved. Use when searching variants and synonyms. TOPIC: aspartame OR saccharine OR sweetener Retrieves documents that contain at least one of the terms. Excludes records that contain a given search term. TOPIC: aids NOT hearing Retrieves documents with aids, excluding any which also contain hearing.
Proximity Operators Phrase searching To search for an exact phrase enter the phrase in quotation marks. Note: the use of quotation marks disables lemmatization of terms. Example: “stem cell” NEAR/xTerms occur within a user-specified number of words within the same field. If no number is specified, the system defaults to 15. Example: canine NEAR/10 virus canine NEAR virus SAMEUsed only in the address field. Terms must occur within the same address. Example: yale SAME hosp
LEMMATIZATION 29 run, runs, ran and running are forms of the same lexeme, with run as the lemma. Examples: frog/frogs mouse/mice color/colour loud/louder/loudest run/running/ran

COMPLETING THE RESEARCH PICTURE: ADDING BOOKS TO WEB OF SCIENCE SM
COMPLETING THE RESEARCH PICTURE: ADDING BOOKS TO 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. o Both multi-authored and single-authored o Series and non-series o Encyclopedias, Reference Books generally not included, though graduate level texts may be considered. Full indexing of Books and individually-authored Book Chapters. o Capture of all fundamental bibliographic information as well as author cited references. The Book Citation Index, within Web of Science
COMPLETING THE RESEARCH PICTURE: ADDING BOOKS TO WEB OF SCIENCE Commercial, Society, University press participation -- Our Acquisitions efforts are still in full stride and have been 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 priority as well, as it is for all Web of Science content. We will of course employ primary mechanisms such as the DOI and OpenUrl. Links from OPAC systems as well. We are also in conversations with e-book aggregators to establish direct links to collections.

COMPLETING THE RESEARCH PICTURE: ADDING BOOKS TO WEB OF SCIENCE WEB OF SCIENCE Book Citation Index The influence of scholarly books is clear, as is their integration with journal and proceedings literature. We will bring these resources together in Web of Knowledge, with introduction of the Book Citation Index into Web of Science later this year.
