Thomson Reuters is excited to be collaborating with Google Scholar to provide links between Web of Science Core Collection and Google Scholar. Easier access to Web of Science from the Open Web will simplify the discovery process and save researchers time.
Researchers often perform a quick search with Google Scholar before turning to Web of Science for a comprehensive view of how a particular article, journal or author impacts the world of scholarly research. Linking from Google Scholar to Web of Science will make this process easier and faster.
The research workflow is evolving, and Google Scholar is increasingly the starting spot for researchers. Web of Science Core Collection remains an invaluable set of curated content where researchers can be ensured they are accessing the world’s best science. By linking the two resources, we are putting the content libraries pay for in one of the places search begins.
Google Scholar respects the ground breaking work done by Dr. Eugene Garfield and the value of that comes from the curated collection of scholarly literature found in Web of Science. Google Scholar wants to ensure researchers have easy access to all the information they need to support them in their pursuits.
No. The links only appear in Google Scholar results and only for Web of Science Core Collection customers.
No. We are turning this on for Web of Science customers only. To see Web of Science links in Google Scholar links, a searcher must be accessing Google Scholar from the institution’s IP range and the institution must subscribe to SCI, SSCI or AHCI. If the record you are viewing is outside of your subscription depth, the links will resolve to a Web of Science Citing Articles Summary Preview page. Premium content is not available to non-subscribers.
The principal source of difference is the set of publications included in either service. Web of Science Core Collection counts are based on a curated database of published, peer-reviewed content that is selected according to publicly available standards. Google Scholar counts are based on a diverse and larger set of publications including published articles, preprints, theses, books, and court opinions.
Nothing! This is free service that Thomson Reuters is providing to customers.
Web of Science Core Collection is the only collection part of this reciprocal links program at this point in time.
