Web of Science searches journal and conference literature from the most highly-cited journals in the world, and in nearly every subject disciplinary. Learn how this tool can help you search, find, evaluate, access and cite research in one streamlined process. This introductory workshop is ideal for undergraduates or graduates beginning their research process who are looking for a deeper method of literature review, one that goes beyond simply skimming the surface.
We will cover search strategies, setting up email alerts, citation management and journal ranking methods, such as h-index, Impact Factor, and Eigenfactor metrics. Subject examples will focus on the sciences, but arts, humanities and social sciences are also covered by this index.
