Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index (SCI) began in 1964 as a five-volume print edition of indexed scientific work. Dr. Eugene Garfield’s unique way of making connections between scientific research has proved to be just the beginning of the vast world of research discovery and analytics with Thomson Reuters Web of Science™.
Fifty years later, Garfield’s foundation work for the Web of Science continues to play an integral part of the evolution of search.
Web of Science was the first web-based citation indexing resource of scholarly and professional journals.
Thomson Reuters was the first to formulate and introduce journal metrics as well as offer bibliographic management software.
The Web of Science connects publications and researchers through citations and controlled indexing in curated databases spanning every discipline, in most cases dating back to 1900.
The new platform will give you advanced access to full text through Google Scholar. Google Scholar will display links directly into the Web of Science so the entire is at your fingertips. Check out the 50 years of history and view a video from a recent visit with Dr. Garfield discussing the origin of SCI and its evolution since 1964.
While access toelectronic databases is not available on 13-14 December, due to the scheduled IT service outages as part of the Data Centre refurbishment project, follow these links for institutional access via Shibboleth.

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/
