Why use Web of Science

Citations symbolise the association of scientific ideas. Web of Knowledge uniquely indexes both cited and citing works - which enables the user to make explicit links between current research and prior scientific works.

Use cited reference data to move both backward and forward in time to track and determine research influence.

Use citation analysis to find influential authors who are publishing high-impact research in your field, discover important author and/or institutional research collaborations, determine where the most impactful research is being published.
