Using Web of Science: Home

 

Web of Science is a database that can help you find citations for research in all areas of knowledge.

The database, though, doesn't contain full text for any of the citations. It links to articles that we do have, and allows you to request ones that we don't have.

To find full text for an article, first try your search. Once your results have loaded, you'll have a couple different ways to read or request full text. (Citations in Web of Science will often include a button that says "Full Text from Publisher," but this won't reliably work, especially if you're not on campus.)

You can click the "Links" button in the search results page to see whether we have full text.

 

Or you can click into the full results page. From there, click "Full Text Options," then "Links."
