Who is Citing Your Work?
University of Hamburg has access to the Web of Science®, ISI®'s premier portal to the Science Citation Index Expanded with 6,200 journals; the Social Science Citation Index with 1800 journals and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index with over 1200 journals.
The Web of Science provides you with access to the bibliographic information within these journals with unique linking capabilities and several search options. You can search for your topic, papers that you have written, papers published by a company or university, and papers that have cited your work.
Guillaume Rivalle, a member of the Thomson Scientific Customer Education department, will provide a product training. The seminar provides instruction on the navigation and uses of the Web of Science.
You will learn how to navigate, how to expand your search using Related Records, and how to do a cited reference search to find the number of papers that cited your work. You will also learn to save and run search strategies, create citation alerts and to print, save, and export your results. We will also describe how the database is created, the journal selection process, and Thomson Scientific's editorial policies.
The session will also comprise a description of the Journal Citation Report, in which you will understand how citation data is compiled so that the Impact Factor of all journals indexed in the Web of Science is calculated. The Journal Citation Report can help you identify the most influencial Journal in your discipline.
