Rod Library recently subscribed to ISI's Web of Knowledge. This is the overall name for a group of databases that includes Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports. This subscription is possible because of factors such as a price reduction, cancellation of the the print Social Sciences Citation Index, and purchase through a consortium. While called Web of Science, the database also covers social sciences journals in categories such as economics, finance, management, and business. One feature of Web of Science is Cited Reference Searching, which makes it possible to identify recent articles citing some particular key author or paper written in the past. Journal Citation Reports is a tool that provides rankings of the impact of journals in various subject areas. Web of Knowledge also includes EndNote Web. Through this, you can set up a personal account and develop your own library of up to 10,000 article citations, organized in the folders you create in the bibliographic format (e.g., APA) you prefer.
