In this session you will learn about two new offerings within the Web of Knowledge, Biosis citation index and Chinese Science Citation Database, that expand the potential for citations in the Web of Knowledge. Slides used in the presentation are attached and can be downloaded by clicking the Attachments tab in the viewing window.
With the release of Web of Knowledge version 5, Web of Science is no longer the sole source of citation data in the Web of Knowledge. Two additional databases, BIOSIS Citation Index and the Chinese Science Citation Database now also contribute citation data to the overall citation landscape of the Web of Knowledge. Article citation counts will include cites from all three sources, presenting a more complete picture of the citation activity to a particular paper.
The Biosis Citation Index includes all the content from BIOSIS Previews, the premier resource for life science literature. The backfile extends to 1926, and citations are captured from 2006 forward. Both general and cited reference searching is available. The Chinese Science Citation Database is the result of a partnership between The Chinese Academy of Sciences and Thomson Reuters. The journal coverage consists of titles published in China that are selected and indexed by the Chinese Academy. Citation data is captured for all content, which extends back to 1989. Both General and Cited Reference searching are available and the data is searchable in both English and Chinese. The Web of Science covers journal and conference literature from 1898 to present across all subject areas in the sciences, social sciences and humanities. Citation data is available for all content and both general and cited reference searching is available.
With the addition of this new citation content, users will notice changes to article citation data as well as the display. *animation 1* This screen capture shows a sample article from the Web of Science. Cited reference and citing article information is found in two places in the record. ** animation 2** To the left you will see a citation count of 1,281, which reflects only citations from other Web of Science articles. On the right hand side ** animation 3** you will see a Cited By count which reflects citations from all Web of Knowledge citation sources. In this case, 1,320. Clicking on this will provide more information about the source of the citations.
The Citing Articles display details where the citations to the article originated. The All Databases count gives you the total number of unique citing articles across the platform, then below that a count for each individual database. When each database count is added individually they total more than the All Databases number. This is because of overlap in journal coverage across the individual databases. These counts are complete, regardless of your subscription, so you are seeing the full picture of the citations to this item. You will only be able to follow links to items for which you have a subscription. For example, if my institution has access to the Chinese Science Citation Database, the link to those articles will be highlighted and I can click through to view them.
This is the resulting set of articles – 13 items in the Chinese Science Citation Database cite the article I was viewing.
So, in summary, citation counts in the Web of Knowledge now include citations not only from Web of Science, but also from BIOSIS Citation Index and Chinese Science Citation Database. The counts displayed are complete, even if your site doesn’t subscribe to the citing database, giving you the full picture of citations to the article. Clicking through to view the citing articles is dependent on subscription.
