Problem (and fixes) when using Web of Knowledge with Internet Explorer 9

10/10/11 UPDATE: According to Thomson Reuters, the vendor that produces Web of Knowledge, the problem with viewing search results in IE9 has been resolved, and one no longer needs to use "compatibility view."

If you use Internet Explorer 9, you may have noticed that your search results are not visible when searching any of the Web of Knowledge databases:

  • Web of Science,
  • BIOSIS Previews,
  • Global Health,
  • CAB Abstracts,
  • Inspec,
  • Zoological Record.

You have two options for dealing with this:

  1. Use another browser, such as Firefox
  2. Use "compatibility view" when viewing Web of Knowledge search results.
