What's New with Web of Science

by Juliet Mullenmeister on 2021-01-18T09:52:00-05:00 in Core Medical Databases, Research | Comments

Web of Science covers over 12,000 journals spanning the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities disciplines. Search capabilities include keyword and advanced searching and the ability to save searches, store citations, and receive automatic alerts via email. Web of Science provides access to full-text holdings based on library holdings, and also allows you to export citations to EndNote and ResearcherID. Web of Science is also extremely useful when looking up meeting abstracts!


For those who already use Web of Science, here are the new features to expect and the expected timeline.

  • Increased emphasis on the citation network to locate articles you need to read now
  • More efficient workflows that save time with streamlined interactions and faster page loading
  • An intuitive interface that supports how and where you want to work—a laptop, a tablet or a phone


More changes to come over the next year:

More information can be found over on the Web of Science information page, or on their information blog. Some of these changes were rolled out through 2020, and they will continue through Spring 2021.  As with many other research databases, the move to mobile devices has pushed the need to reconfigure interfaces, streamline processes, and make the resource more tailored to the individual user.
