Library Tip: New Interface and Features for Web of Science
On Monday, February 4, the Web of Science will introduce a new look and new features for searching the Science Citation Index database. The biggest change is a prominent Refine Results box on the left-hand side where you can limit your searches by specific subject, year, author, language, and more. Exporting options appear above the records. The Analyze Results feature allows you to compare up to 100,000 records by author, year, institution, and journal. See who has published the most papers in your field or which institutions publish in your area

The Kresge Library has developed short, three to five minute tutorials to introduce you to the new interface. These can be found on the library's Training and Guides page for Web of Science.
