and find the information you need, using
Web of Science

Web of Science is an enhanced Web version of the Institute for Scientific Information's citation indexes, including the Science Citation Index, the Social Sciences Citation Index, and the Arts and Humanities Citation Index. Web of Science measures the impact of particular journals and is one of the sources used by the National Research Council to rank graduate programs.

The Libraries' Web of Science subscription includes citations and references from articles in more than 8,000 high-quality, peer-reviewed journals published from 1994 to the present. In addition to articles, other document types indexed are letters, corrections, additions, editorials, and reviews.

Rachel Irvine, a professional trainer from Thomson-ISI (the parent company of the Web of Science), will lead workshops on how to use this resource most effectively.

Seating is limited and a minimum of 20 attendees is requested for each session. To register, please call Libraries Administration at 732/932-7505 or send email to
