New WOS December 16 Release Notes

Data Citation Index, Full Text Links improvements, and more.

Data Citation Index

Data Citation Index is now available for you to explore on the new Web of Science. The Data Citation Index provides a single point of access to quality research data from global repositories across disciplines. Descriptive records are created for data objects and linked to articles in the Web of Science.


Search aids for Data Citation Index and Zoological Record

You can now create a more targeted and meaningful search query with the help of the newly redesigned search aids:  Subject descriptors in Data Citation Index and Zoological Record. You can access them by clicking the link Select from list below each respective search field.


Full Text Links Improvements: Chinese Academy of Sciences Institutional Repository and Online Public Access Catalog

Web of Science Core Collection and All Databases results now offer links to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institutional Repository for open access content. Chinese Academy of Sciences is the leading open access repository in China with whom Web of Science has partnered to bring additional visibility to open access content from China.

Also, we have added Online Public Access Catalog links on the full record. If your institution has OPAC links configured, then this option will appear in the full text links dropdown menu on the full record.


Expose Web of Science Categories as a search field

You can now search by Web of Science Categories in Advanced Search by selecting this new field from the field dropdown menu. As you type, the matching categories will be displayed in a type-ahead list so you can make an easy selection.
