1 Comparison of BIDS ISI (Enhanced) with Web of Science Lisa Haddow

2 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Why do I suggest staff and students use BIDS ISI? n To search for - articles on a particular subject (service is updated weekly therefore very up-to-date. There ARE other more subject specific databases available) - review articles on a particular subject - carrying out citation searches (unique) - conference papers - current awareness

3 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Coverage BIDS ISI (enhanced) n citation indexes present n ISTP, present n Updated weekly n Select database at start or use pull-down menu n Defaults to last 4 years Web of Science n citation indexes present (SCI expanded 1974-) n Updated weekly n Check box to select database not link (goes to further information on database)

4 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Search Interface BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Frames and web interface Web of Science n Web interface

5 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Types of Searching BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Easy Search - Subject - Author Web of Science n Quick search - Topic (subject) - Person (Author; Citation; Subject) - Place (Institutional; Geographic)

6 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Types of searching (contd.) BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Advanced Search - Subject - Author - Journal - Patent - Address Web of Science n Full Search - General search » topic, author, source (journal); address - Cited reference » citation search - Run Saved query

7 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Types of searching (contd.) Web of ScienceBIDS ISI (enhanced) n Citation searching n Citation analysis n Autojournals n Re-running saved searches

8 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Boolean operators BIDS ISI (enhanced) n, represents or n + or & represent and n - represents not n phrase searching possible Web of Science n or n and n not n phrase searching possible n same - proximity within same field

9 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Truncation BIDS ISI (enhanced) n * - truncation n ? - single character n # - any word in a phrase Web of Science n * - truncation or single character n ?- single character

10 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Searching BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Possible to build up searches stepwise by re-using previous sets Web of Science n Must put in complex search statement at once using ()

11 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Limiting BIDS ISI (enhanced) n from advanced search - document type (e.g., review) - language - year Web of Science n from Full General Search - document type (e.g., review) - language - year

12 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Citation searching BIDS ISI (enhanced) n First author only n Can search for a particular paper Web of Science n First author required only if full reference not in WoS n From Quick Search - Searching for any work that cites this author - not particular paper - To find citations to a particular paper need to find that reference in the database then click on Times cited link

13 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Citation searching (contd.) Web of Science n From Full search - Select Cited Reference search - much easier - can search for a particular paper - To see the references which cite your paper click on link to original paper and then on Times Cited link

14 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Current awareness BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Saved searches - saved on BIDS system and retrieved using identifier - can be run against any system updates since search last carried out Web of Science n Run saved query - saved on local disc - can be run against last weeks update only

15 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Current awareness BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Autojournals - ability to receive the contents pages of up to 30 journals through Web of Science

16 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Author searching BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Author last name linked to initials with underscore -E.g., Chandler_NG Web of Science n Author last name followed by initial(s) -E.g., Chandler NG

17 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Displaying of results BIDS ISI (enhanced) n 5 Formats - Title only - Title, author, journal - Title, author, journal and abstract - Full record except citations and research - Full record n Can redisplay in a different format Web of Science n 2 Formats - Summary (Author, Title, Source) - Full record

18 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Displaying of results (contd.) BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Total number of results displayed in results frame, e.g, - 4 articles found Web of Science n Results split into groups of 10 n In summary format total number of results found is displayed at bottom of results page, e.g., of documents matched the query

19 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Displaying of results (contd.) BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Results displayed in reverse chronological order Web of Science n Sorting of results possible - by relevance (ranking) - by reverse chronological order

20 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Marking BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Click on mark button n Mark all means - all results n Up to 200 articles can be marked n Can review marked list Web of Science n Check box then click on submit - 2 stage process n Mark all - means all 10 results n Dont know if limit to marking n MUST look at Marked List in order to output it

21 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Output BIDS ISI (enhanced) n n Download n 5 Formats - (as display) in either - standard or - downloading format (for bibliographic software packages, e.g., ProCite) Web of Science n Print n Export (bibliographic software package,e.g., ProCite) n Save as- to hard disk (quick)

22 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Output (contd) Web of Science n Default format - author, title, source - option to select other fields (including abstract) n Can sort records by - latest date - first author - source title - times cited

23 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Other facilities BIDS ISI (enhanced) n Citation analysis n Full-text of articles through Journals Online Web of Science n Document Ordering

24 Lisa Haddow: University of Stirling Comparison of BIDS ISI with WoS Other concerns n Telnet users (Betsy will look at in greater detail ) n Charges for JANET use of transatlantic connection n Speed of service
