The most recent enhancements to Web of Knowledge will help you quickly access the digital data that informs your research, easily refine your author search to return the most accurate results, and integrate ResearcherID accounts with ORCID.

  • The Author Search has been enhanced to provide researchers with the ability to refine their search as precisely as they require, while retaining the capability for them to easily claim their publications.
  • The integration of ResearcherID with ORCID, the industry-wide initiative to resolve name ambiguity, allows researchers to readily identify and publically showcase their publications. More information about ORCID at: http://about.orcid.org/
  • The Data Citation Index is now available on the Web of Knowledge platform (additional subscription required). This gives researchers quick and easy access to the datasets and studies from repositories across disciplines and around the world.
