Enhancements to the ISI Web of Knowledge Preview Service

30 June 2003

MIMAS are pleased to announce that the Preview service at: http://wok.mimas.ac.uk/ now has ISI Proceedings. For searching this is listed under the Cross Searchable products or can be selected from the drop down menu at the top.

Additionally available is the 'CrossSearch – Form' option with the capability to search both ISI Web of Science, ISI Proceedings and External Collections. To change the products for searching go to the 'Change Products to search' option from the CrossSearch – Form screen.

Following this implementation, work will commence at MIMAS to add the specific information for all the 154 institutions which subscribe to the service, this will be completed during July. Once this information is present in the administration software all the additional links and additional products to which an institution is entitled will be enabled. The second option for cross searching CrossSearch – Concept will also be enabled at this time.

Both the ISI Web of Science service and the ISI Web of Knowledge service will run concurrently for approximately 1 month and users will automatically be re-directed to the new url from the ISI Web of Science service when it is discontinued.

One of the additional new features of the ISI Web of Knowledge service is a link on the Home page to HighlyCited.com information on this free ISI product can be found at: http://www.isinet.com/isi/products/research/isihighlycited.
