Web of Knowledge Now Web of Science

The Web of KWOSnowledge has a new name and a new design.  The Web of Science continues to have all the same features and functions as in earlier versions of the product, but has been streamlined for faster and easier use.

A few of the new features are:

  • More “Sort” options (A-Z or Z-A by first author, source title, conference title, relevance, times cited and more)
  • A direct link to the journal’s impact factor in the Full Record view
  • A list of how many times an article has been cited and in what Web of Science databases in the Full Record view

Another change is that the UC Article Linker button is only visible after you click on “Full Text”.

Access the Web of Science from the Health Sciences Library home page under Express Links in the center of the page.  Questions?  Contact Edith Starbuck at 513-558-1433 or edith.starbuck@uc.edu

Scopus: New Design!


On February 1, 2014, Scopus released a new more action driven design.  New redesign features include:

  • Items or icons will only appear active when an action is performed.  For example, the search history on the home page is not shown until a search is performed.
  • Export options will be available when results are selected to export.
  • Search results are easier to scan with options that appear only when results are selected.
  • Author and Affiliation profiles have been condensed to optimize scanning.
  • The reference manager Mendeley has been added to the export options.
  • Once export options have been selected and saved, the next export can be done with just one click.
