What is Web of Science?

A key database

The database Web of Science contains high-quality scholarly journals from the fields of science, social sciences, economics, and the arts and humanities. It' is an important database that you should always use when you're looking for scholarly literature. 

Included in Web of Science:

  • information about articles from thousands of scholarly journals;
  • information about proceedings from conferences, book chapters, and review articles;
  • information about how many times each of the articles have been cited by other articles. 

Sometimes you can get to the full text of the articles, but not always.
