What is:

index

Full Record Fields

Title

The full title of the journal article, conference proceeding, book, book chapter, and so on.

A book chapter record is the title of the book chapter. The source is the title of the book. If the title and the source are the same, then it is always a book.

index

By

The names of all authors. You may see two versions of an author name in records of articles published in 2006 and later. Be aware that you must still search for an author by last name followed by one or more initials.

A superscript number may appear after an author's name. This means we have found an association between the author's name and the author's address. When you click the number link, the system takes you to the Addresses field where you can see the author's address.

In some cases, an author may be assigned more than one address and you will see more than one superscript number. In other cases, an author may not be assigned an address while other authors of the same article are assigned an address. This occurs when we cannot determine which address is associated with an author.

The product maintains the author / address association when you print, e-mail, save, and export records. In the Address field of your output document, look for the author's name before the address.

Journal Information

Table of Contents: Current Content Connect®

This field contains a link to the Current Contents Connect® Browse Journals page where you can browse the table of contents of journals and books covered by the editions and collections to which you subscribe in Current Contents Connect.

Performance Trends: Essential Science IndicatorsSM

This field contains a link to Essential Science Indicators where you can perform in-depth analysis to find data for ranking scientists, institutions, countries, and journals. With Essential Science Indicators, you can:

  • Explore science performance statistics and science trends data, based on journal article publication counts and citation data
  • Determine research output and impact in specific fields of research
  • Evaluate potential employees, collaborators, reviewers, and peers

Impact Factor: Journal Citation Reports®

The journal Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from the journal published in the past two years have been cited in the JCR year.

The Impact Factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the JCR year by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. An Impact Factor of 1.0 means that, on average, the articles published one or two year ago have been cited one time. An Impact Factor of 2.5 means that, on average, the articles published one or two year ago have been cited two and a half times. The citing works may be articles published in the same journal. However, most citing works are from different journals, proceedings, or books indexed by Web of Science.

Remember that the JCR year is the year of the JCR edition displayed in the top right-hand corner of the page. Each JCR year contains one year of citation data. You select the JCR year on the Welcome page.
