Analyzing Citations using Web of Science

  1. 1. Web of Science is a multi-disciplinary database, containing millions of published scholarly works in the social sciences, sciences, and the humanities. It contains material from 1900-present. It also has a tool for analyzing citations in depth. The following slides will walk you through the process of analyzing citations for a specific paper.
  2. 2. To get started, use the drop down menu to change your search option from Topic to Title.
  3. 3. We are going to analyze the citations of this paper, the most highly cited paper of all time.
  4. 4. Once you locate the paper, click on the title to access it’s record page. To access the paper itself, click on the Article Linker button to connect to the library’s electronic copy.
  5. 5. The record page displays all of the information about the paper that Web of Science has collected and added to the database. Whenever you are searching library databases, your search is limited to which words and data are listed in the record page.
  6. 6. The Citation Network sidebar contains all of the citation data that you can analyze. You can look through cited references to examine the bibliography of the paper. By clicking on times cited, you can see which scientists have listed this paper in the bibliography of a paper they wrote. Let’s get a closer look by clicking on the 25 Cited References link.
  7. 7. By clicking the Article Linker button, you can connect directly to the cited paper. You’ll see the Article Linker button in all library databases. Article Linker is a tool that searches through the library’s subscriptions to check and see if there is an electronic copy available.
