The first three citation databases contain the references cited by the authors of the articles. You can use these references to do cited reference searching. This type of search allows you to find articles that cite a previously published work. It fully covers nearly 12,000 major journals.

About Citation Indexes

A citation index contains the references cited by the authors of the publications covered by the index. You can use these references to do a cited reference search. This type of search enables you to find works that cite a previously published work.

About All Databases Search

The All Databases search function allows you to search all product databases in your institution's entitlements subscription at the same time.

It is available to institutions that subscribe to two or more product databases. An All Databases tab will appear at the top of the Search page when you access Web of Knowledge. If your institution only subscribes to one product database, then the system takes you directly to that product's Search page--you will not see an All Databases tab.
