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.

Funding

This field contains funding information supplied by the source document. Web of Science Core Collection has been capturing funding information since 2008 in SCI-Expanded and since 2015 in SSCI. 

In 2016 Web of Science began supplementing the grant information with grant agencies and grant numbers from researchfish®

Grant Number

Funding information usually includes and identification number or code assigned by the funding agencies for a specific funding project. Examples of these are grant numbers, project numbers, and program numbers. 

In Web of Science Core Collection, this identifier is called a grant number.

Funding organization may also be presented without grant numbers.

Funding Text

Click the link View funding text to view the acknowledgement of support taken from the source document.

Funding sources that supported the research may be identified by the source article. Generally, this information is found in the acknowledgment section which is often presented before the references at the end of the article. Funding information may also be found at the end of the abstract or with address information.

index

Grant Number

Grant information comes from articles in journals covered by Web of Science Core Collection. Grant information indexing began in 2008.

Grant information is publicly available on many Web sites such as PubMed.  You can find additional information by entering the grant number when performing a search. For example, a search on "Swiss National Science Foundation" in PubMed finds articles written by researchers from institutions funded by this agency.

In 2016 Web of Science Core Collection began supplementing the grant information with grant agencies and grant numbers from MEDLINE and researchfish®. Records that already contained grant information will not be changed. Records that did not have grant information were updated with grant information from MEDLINE and researchfish®.

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 defined as all citations to the journal in the current JCR year to items published in the previous two years, divided by the total number of scholarly items (these comprise articles, reviews, and proceedings papers) published in the journal in the previous two years.

Though not a strict mathematical average, the Journal Impact Factor provides a functional approximation of the mean citation rate per citable item.  A Journal Impact Factor of 1.0 means that, on average, the articles published one or two years ago have been cited one time.  A Journal Impact Factor of 2.5 means that, on average, the articles published one or two years 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 in Web of Science Core Collection.

index
