The three Web of Science databases index citations from journal articles and conference proceedings in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities. You can perform cited reference searches, analyze trends and patterns, and create visual representations of citation relationships. 1975-present.
Web of Science has long been the primary tool for performing cited reference searches. If your article was published in one of the journals, conference proceedings, or books tracked in the database, you can find citing sources from these publications and many other publications not tracked by Web of Science. (For a thorough cited reference search, use additional databases.) Screencast directions for searching in Web of Science are linked in the right sidebar.
Cited reference searching starts with a specific article, book, or other publication. Usually your first step is to find that publication in the database you are using. That may mean searching the title, but sometimes you'll use the author's name. Since citations for this publication can vary, expect the need to select from among variations or to perform multiple searches and combining the results.
