Web of Science/Science Citation Index

Web of Science helps in navigating backward in time using cited references to uncover the research that influenced an author's work. It will also help in tracking a topic through some additional years of research literature. The Citation Indexes provide access to current and retrospective bibliographic information, author abstracts and cited references.
