A short guide on how to use Web of Knowledge

The address to web of knowledge is http://apps.webofknowledge.com/UA_GeneralSearch_input.do?product=UA&search_mode=GeneralSearch&SID=R22Q3qMg9UiQpVX9bFY&preferencesSaved=

You can also search for it on LUBsearch.

When you have entered, there is a tab called “select a Database”

On our last meeting, we looked at two of the databases: Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports.

In Journal Citation Reports you look at journals, their impact factor and other statistics about them. Human Rights, Humanitarian Law and International Law is all under “JCR Social Sciences Edition”. You can also search for a specific title, if you don’t know the exact titel, use * to truncate.

Wikipedia has a good article about Impacy Factor and its implications.

In “Web of Science” you search for Authors and Articles.

There are a lot of good guides out there about how to use "web of Science" this one is a good example
