It is now possible to Refine and Analyze Results when searching across Web of Knowledge content. The All Databases search maps the unique category names in each database to a common Web of Knowledge category. Bological Abstracts Web of Science MEDLINE This search for “post traumatic stress” returned results from CAB Abstracts, Web of Science, and MEDLINE. These results can be limited to the General Category Social Sciences
3,689 results are found after refining by Social Sciences The Web of Knowledge uses the specialized indexing in each database to determine how to categorize each record
A student or researcher wants to locate articles on the legal aspects of Embryonic Stem Cell research and uses Refine Results to narrow a set of results Refine by Subject Areas
Refining the results of multiple databases by Subject Area can be difficult because of the unique terminologies used in each. For example – Web of Knowledge Subject Category: Government & Law MEDLINE: State Government CAB Abstracts: Laws and Regulations BIOSIS: Government and Law
The Web of Knowledge maps the specialized indexing in each database to a common Web of Knowledge subject category
Derwent Class Code: Nuclear Power Generation Patent results can also be refined and analyzed by Subject Area in the Web of Knowledge because of the value-added indexing in Derwent Innovations Index. The patents can be analyzed along with other Web of Knowledge sources allowing for a complete overview of research in an area.
Launch a WebPlus search directly from the All Database search results page.
The original search query is transferred to the WebPlus search Results are categorized by content type Thomson Scientific WebPlus utilizes our expertise to disambiguate terms and prioritize search results. This provides highly relevant open web results that complement ISI Web of Knowledge content.

The Journal Citation Report
Two editions (Sciences and Social Sciences)
Use a variety of indicators (Impact Factor, 5-year Impact Factor, Eigen Factor…) to Identify the most influent Journals indexed in the Web of Science
Journal Citation Reports JCR includes many metrics for the evaluation of journals including the Impact Factor … and a more detailed information on Self-Citations including a re-calculated Impact Factor
Impact Factor is based on two years of cited journal content – cites in the current year to journal material published in the prior two years.
A 5-Year Impact Factor is based on cites in the current year to journal material published in the prior five years.
Journal Citation Reports ® Geology Geology
Eigenfactor TM and Article Influence TM : To compliment Impact Factor and other JCR metrics by providing a broader perspective on Journal Influence through specific measures now widely accepted by the scholarly community. These metrics are developed through The Eigenfactor Project™ -- a non-commercial academic research project sponsored by the Bergstrom lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. – www.eigenfactor.org Journal Citation Reports ®
