Web of Science Webinars


Clarivate Analytics | Web of Science

Web of Science (WoS) databases are used across the world to track and report on research data, from citations to open access, that is not tied to any particular publisher, curated and linked. The university subscribes to WoS so staff across the university have the opportunity to use and explore this vast store of research publishing information.

The core databases can be used to draw reports on an individual level or across a whole institution, and can be used to compare institutions. As you can imagine there is a huge amount of data available so instruction on analysis techniques and the possibilities cannot be covered in one web page; see the links below to get you started, or speak to colleagues who may have some knowledge of running research data enquiries.
