The Thomson Reuters Article Match Retrieval Service allows for a real-time lookup of bibliographic metadata such as Digital Object Identifier, author, source title, etc., against the Web of Science™ Core Collection database using the institution's subscription entitlements. If a match is found, the service will return Times Cited information as well as links to view the full record, related records page, or citing articles page in Web of Science Core Collection. Subscribers to Journal Citation Reports (JCR) can use this service to retrieve links to the JCR record for a given journal.
