CCC Available in WoK

13 October 2003

We are happy to announce that users can now access Current Contents Connect (CCC) from within the Web of Knowledge (WoK) platform.

The benefits of this move include the ability to use the CrossSearch function from the Web of Knowledge portal page.

  1. The CrossSearch allows users to Search across ISI Web of Knowledge Products and External Collections. In the search results users will see a list of records and ISI product buttons (including CCC) which users can then click on to enter the individual record. It Is most beneficial as a resource discovery tool. Instructions on how to use the Cross Search function can be found in the User Guides and Workbooks on the WoK Support page.
  2. Users will also be able to take advantage of the integrated inter-product links between ISI's products. From a full record users can link to and from the Web of Science and ISI Proceedings and other ISI products, depending on an Institution's subscription.

CCC will continue to retain its familiar search features from past versions, but will include the new inter-product links and CrossSearch functionality.

Users of Current Contents Connect will need to resave their searches in the new CCC within the WoK platform. Due to the additional level of the platform, searches saved in the older version of CCC will no longer run within WoK and therefore will need to be resaved. MIMAS regrets the inconvenience this will cause.

To enable users to make a smooth transition we will run the old Currents Contents Connect service (outside of the portal) in parallel with the new service until the 28th November so that users can resave their alerts within the Web of Knowledge.
