Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This workshop offers an introduction to the database Web of Science. In this multidisciplinary database all bibliographic data (title, authors, source) can be found. Additionally abstracts and the reference list are saved in an attachment to the article and can be searched. This reference attachment is so to speak, the trade mark of this product as it combines the function of a reference- with a citation database. This allows you to find all publications which cite a specific publication of a scientist, an institution or a country). Approximately 9200 scientific journals with around 37 million articles of all disciplines are thereby analyzed.
ISI Web of Knowledge (with its main part Web of Science as well as further analytical tools) is the classic tool to answer following questions:
- How is research developing in my field?
- What are new 'hot topics' and research trends?
- What are the main (and constantly cited) articles in my field?
- How visible are my publications?
- How can I enhance my visibility?
- What is the impact of my publication? (How often are my publications cited?)
- How many citations do my publications need in order to range along the best?
- Who are my competitors in my field?
- How is my research output in comparison to the output of my competitors?
