Retirement of the Classic Web of Science Interface

The ‘Classic’ Web of Science interface was retired on 6th January 2022, as scheduled. The link to the Classic Web of Science in the header bar of the new WoS has now been removed. Additionally, Clarivate have put redirects on all direct links into the Classic Web of Science platform so that it is no longer accessible.

  • All account information, saved settings, and saved searches and alerts are already available in the new version of Web of Science, so users do not need to take any action to ensure a seamless transition.
  • Saved searches from Web of Science classic can contain up to 40 search sets. After rerunning a classic saved search from the Alerts management page, the History page will now show all the saved search sets.
