Web of Knowledge Training

The library is offering expert training for staff and postgraduate students in using the Web of Knowledge to enhance their research.

The presenter will be Steven Werkheiser – a visiting Thomson Reuters’ trainer from Sydney.

Session content will include:
  • Conference Proceedings Citation Indexes provide end user access to over 12,000 conferences a year with the added value of integrated citation data. Users can now see if their publications are cited by other journal articles and conference papers together.
  • Chemistry package comprised of the Index Chemicus and Current Chemical Reactions is now available, thus expanding access to the chemical literature with structure searching capabilities.
  • MEDLINE is now integrated into the Web of Knowledge platform which allows cross searching with the Web of Science so that users can take advantage of citation searching and navigation alongside the full MeSH browsing and searching capabilities.
  • 2009 Journal Citation Reports provide an objective means of critically evaluating and ranking journals based on citation data (especially useful for those looking to publish).
  • ResearcherID enhancements.
