Web of Knowledge New Products Trial in December
WoK’s Conference Proceedings Citation Index along with the just released “Book Citation Index” will be available as part of a trial from December 1st through the 31st. Find them activated under the regular link for our Web of Science subscription on the front page of the Library website.
A few questions for faculty reviewers.
- Drexel users can already use Summon to search for much of the content covered by the WoK proceedings index. How important is the citation information for proceedings?
- The WoK books index covers titles since 2005, about 30,000 in all that they plan to grow by 10,000 per year. It’s roughly 40% sciences, and 60% social science and humanities. Would citations of this literature make a difference to you? (Partial list of participating publishers available by request.)
- We did *not* request a trial of the Chinese Science Citation Database. Should we have? Why?
