Web of Science – a crucial resource for finding and analysing the most relevant information in science, social science, arts and humanities (including journals, books, data, patents, conference proceedings and more) brings powerful tools to show the value and impact of research and add context and insight to search results.

Embedded tools help you track research and citations across time, content types and subject areas – showing the value and impact of research — and bringing to light references and articles of interest.  

Kopernio enables one-click access to PDFs from library subscriptions and open access repositories.

Manuscript Matcher helps you easily find the ideal place for your work to be published
