Full Record

View all of the information about a record that is contained in the product database. The title of the document appears at the top of the page.

Any or all of the following fields may appear in a record, depending on the content and type of the source document. If no data are available for a particular field, then the field does not display.

Full Record Fields


The full title of the article. All article and chapter titles are in English. Titles of articles and book chapters that are not published in English are translated into English, unless the publication provides an English-language translation.



The author(s) of the article or book chapter. You may see two versions of an author name in records of articles published in 2007 and later. For example: Diaz, G (Diaz, Gregorio). Be aware that you must still search for an author by last name followed by one or more initials.

Anonymous authors appear as [Anon]. If, however, there are group authors, then the field is blank.

For newly indexed records, 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.


Group Author(s)

The name of the organization or institution that authored the source document. For example, the IEEE and Down Syndrome Res Grp.


Book Author(s)

The names of one or more book authors.


Book Group Author(s)

The names of one or more institutional authors of a book such as IEEE.


Edited by

The name of one or more editors of a source publication. Note that a corporate author can also be an editor.

The number before the address is associated with the author name that appears in the Author(s) field with the same (superscript) number.

Most records of articles published in 2008 or later link an address to an author name via a number in superscript next to the author name.

Accession Number

A unique identifying number associated with each record in the product. It consists of a product identification code and a unique item number.


PubMed ID. The PubMed ID is available for records of documents that have corresponding records in MEDLINE.



The International Standard Book Number is a unique machine-readable identifier that marks a book unmistakably.

The format is a 10-digit number that contains 3 hyphens (-). The last digit is a check character, which may be a number or an X. The position of the hyphens can vary for each ISBN identifier. Example: 978-0-387-36949-5



The International Standard Serial Number is a unique eight-digit number that identifies periodical publications such as journals and electronic publications.

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.


Other Information

IDS Number

The IDS Number uniquely identifies an issue of a journal. At one time, it was used to order copies of articles from a document delivery service. This identifier still has utility because records of articles from the same issue of a journal share the same IDS Number.

Please contact your library administrator, or person(s) responsible for document delivery, to learn how to obtain printed copies of articles.  Alternatively, go to the website of the Copyright Clearance Center,, to learn how to order copies of documents from the CCC.

To access the full text of a document in electronic form, open the Full Text Options menu above a full record.

Citation Network

Times Cited

The Times Cited count displays the total number of times a published paper was cited by other papers within our database products such as Web of Science Core Collection and BIOSIS Citation Index . The link takes you to a Citing Articles page in one of our citation indexes.

Access to records is limited to your institution's subscription.


Cited References

The Cited References count displays the number of documents cited by the current record. Click the link to view the list of cited references. From there you can view the full record of each cited reference. (Access to the full records of cited references may be limited to your institution's subscription.)


To view records that share cited references with the record you are viewing in the current product database, click the View Related Records link.

The assumption behind Related Records searching is that articles that cite the same works have a subject relationship, regardless of whether their titles, abstracts, or keywords contain the same terms. The more cited references two articles share, the closer the subject relationship.

The link displays the total number of related records within one of our citation indexes such as Web of Science Core Collection or BIOSIS Citation Index .

Access to records is limited to your institution's subscription.
