Web of Science Workshops

The Rutgers University Libraries recently acquired the Web of Science, the enhanced web version of the arts and humanities, social sciences, and science citation indexes from the Institute for Scientific Information.

Our Web of Science subscription includes citations, abstracts, and cited references for articles in more than 8,000 high quality, peer-reviewed journals published from 1994 to the present. Also included are links to the full text of a growing number of articles in the electronic journals to which the Libraries subscribe. Other document types indexed are letters, corrections, additions, editorials, and reviews.

Marcella Barnhart, a professional trainer from the Institute for Scientific Information, will conduct workshops for faculty and students on how to use the Web of Science most effectively. The following workshop sessions are available:

Acquisition of the Web of Science was made possible with support from the Reinvest in Rutgers program and is part of the implementation of A Bridge to the Future: The Rutgers Digital Library Initiative, the Libraries' long-range plan. The acquisition of the Web of Science was prompted by its high demand among faculty and the strong multidisciplinary nature of the resource. The Web of Science is one of the sources used by the National Research Council to rank graduate programs. You may access the Web of Science from within Library Catalog or from the Libraries' website following the path Indexes / Web of Science.
