2.2. Web of Science: Result page

❶ Sort order

Date (newest to oldest) is the default sort order. You can change the sort order to Relevance (as we did in this example). Other sort orders include Times Cited, Usage count, and more.

❷ Refine Results

Use the Refine Results feature to filter your results. Some of the main filters include Publication Years, Web of Science Categories (broad fields of study), Document Types, Authors, and Source Titles (e.g. Journal of Public Affairs). You can also search within the results.

Finding full text: the TiUfinder

Not all records have full text available from Web of Science. Use the TiUfinder button to check if the full text is available from another database that the TiU library subscribes to.

 Times Cited

In Web of Science you do a simple citation search. For every item a clickable citation count is displayed, telling you how often the item has been cited by other items. Please note that when you maintain the default sort orter (Date), the top results will be so recent that they have not yet been cited.
