Web of Science
Coverage:1976 to the present, but can vary by index

The Web of Science Core Collection consists of several separate multidisciplinary citation indexes that can be searched independently or in combination. Included by default are the:

  • Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI)
  • Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED)
  • Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI)
  • Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S)
  • Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Social Science & Humanities (CPCI-SSH)
  • Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

​Indexing over 12,000 scholarly journals (including open-access titles) and over 160,000 conference proceedings, the Web of Science contains bibliographic information on all types of documents appearing in journals including articles, citations, letters, corrections, additions, excerpts, editorials and reviews. Information from these indexes can be retrieved by topic (i.e., includes title,abstract and keywords), by author, by publication name, by address, by organization, by cited reference (or bibliography) and more.
