New WOS April 28 Release Notes

Citation map and JCR journal information on researcher profiles

Citation map on researcher profiles

A citation map is now available to view on all claimed researcher profiles inside the Metrics Dashboard overlay. The map displays a data point for each distinct institution with a contributor to a publication in the Web of Science Core Collection which cited the researcher’s work. The map offers a view of the geographic distribution of the researcher’s citations based on the address of the citing publication’s contributors, therefore the number of data points on the map may not align with the sum of times cited count in the Web of Science Core Collection. Zoom in/out and drag the map to explore the content. Individual article information can be accessed by clicking on the red pin.


Journal information overlay on researcher profiles

Journals listed in researcher profiles – either in the publications list or in an open peer review record – are now clickable to view journal information from Journal Citation Reports (entitlements dependent).

Thank you for your support and feedback. Together we will bring a better Web of Science to all.
