Clarivate is committed to meeting user feedback and requests promptly. In a recent survey of Web of Science users, researchers expressed their appetite for dissertations and theses as the most desired source of secondary, supplementary content. In response, Clarivate is integrating ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global with the Web of Science in two phases.

  • Phase 1: Now available, the first phase integrates dissertation and thesis content into the Web of Science platform to offer discovery of a multidisciplinary collection of early career scholarship from over 4,100 institutions across 60+ countries.
  • Phase 2: We are working quickly to add citation linkages– by the end of 2023. Until then researchers can enjoy the benefit of retrieving unique dissertations and theses content alongside research from varied sources in a single set of Web of Science search results.
