Mayo Clinic Library Expands Web of Science Content

April 26, 2012 at 8:36 am

The Mayo Clinic Library has recently expanded its access to Web of Science with content going back to 1975.

Web of Science is a multidisciplinary scientific database which offers traditional author and subject searching, but also the ability to search cited references for a given article.

Expanded access to Web of Science content also enhances the ability to track career h-index by expanding the range of available data.

The h-index attempts to measure the impact and productivity of a scientist’s published work.  It is a calculation that examines both the number of publications and number of citations per publication.

For further information about calculating h-index using Web of Science view this tutorial.
