New WoS April 29 Release Notes

You May Also Like..., Enriched cited references, Export to Publons, and more

You may also like…

We’ve expanded the “You may also like,” feature so that suggested records will now appear on every single item in the Web of Science Core Collection; and a set of suggested records is now available for every search of the Core Collection on a new tab. For users looking for something specific, suggested articles can dramatically expedite search. And for users browsing generally, they can create serendipitous moments of discovery!

Access other articles you might like from new tab on results screen

Articles that you might also like are in the right column of the article page.

Enriched cited references

Some articles have enriched the cited references with additional context that is designed to capture the author’s intent when citing references in the body of their article including:

  • how many times a reference was cited within this article so that you know how impactful it was to the author
  • what references are cited in proximity so that you know which references are most related
  • where in the body of the article it was cited so that you know why the reference might have been cited (ie, references from the introduction or beginning of an article are foundational articles whereas references from the material and methods section may related to how the experiment was structured).

Visualization showing enriched cited references

A visualization accompanies these enriched cited references in which a dot indicates each time a cited reference was cited within the body of the article. Hover on the dots to see which reference the dot represents. Click on the “View in-text mention” to navigate down to the cited reference of interest and see which other references were cited nearby, which suggests a close degree of relatedness.

You may also sort the enriched cited references to view them in the order of first appearance (most like a traditional bibliography); by all appearances (so you can see which references were cited near each other); and by Cited in article-Highest (so you can surface the must-read, most impactful references if you are pressed for time).

Submit feedback on new feature

This enhancement has been released in a beta format. At initial release, it is available for selected content from Core Collection only. Subscribers can view a sample of records that contain enriched cited references here. We welcome feedback to inform future development.

Library custom branding

New Web of Science now displays the library logos at the bottom of the basic search page for customers who have requested it. In this manner, users can recognize the libraries that provides their access to Web of Science and have an easy path back to the library’s resource page. Customers may request to display their logo by following these instructions. Support for logos displayed at the top of the page will follow in a subsequent release.

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