Web of Science Enhancements

11 July 2005

On behalf of Thomson Scientific, MIMAS are pleased to announce some new enhancements to the ISI Web of Science Service (now at version 7.2). Several new features have been added in this quarterly release:

  • You can now sort up to 100,000 records for all sort options on the Summary page, including the Times Cited option. This feature allows you to be more selective and to identify only those records important to you. It also offers enhanced analytical possibilities when you join these greater sort limits with the Analyze tool.
  • You can now select the number of results (10–50) to display on the Summary page from a show number per page drop-down list on the left-hand side of the page. The selected number remains throughout a session until you select a different number.
  • A Save Analysis Data to File button has been added to the Results Analysis page, which allows you to export your results to a text file. You can then import the results into Microsoft® Office Excel or a similar software product to later review for more in-depth analysis.
  • A Submit Marks button has been added to the bottom of the Summary page. This means you can submit your marked records without having to scroll back to the top of the Summary page. This is useful if you have increased the number of records per page.
  • You can now combine sets (e.g. #1 AND #3) with results that are greater than 100,000.

Remember, to access the new service go to http://wok.mimas.ac.uk and connect via the top right-hand link.

We would welcome your feedback and any further enhancement requests you may have, either via email or the feedback form.
