Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports Renewed

The Library is pleased to announce that it has renewed two important resources that will give students and faculty access to valuable information, data, and research. 

Web of Science is an abstract and index database of peer-reviewed journals, books, reports, and conference proceedings in the sciences, social sciences, and the arts and humanities.

Abstract and index databases facilitate in-depth research in specialized fields through the analysis of academic journals and articles, allowing researchers to effectively track citations backwards and forwards in time, as well as determine the impact of scholarly journals.
