Web of Knowledge interface changes

Web of Science

Web of Knowledge databases including Web of Science, BIOSIS Previews, CAB Abstracts and Global Health, Data Citation Index, Inspec, and Zoological Record deployed a new user interface beginning January 12, 2014. Among the changes:

  • The default search page now features a single search box for the Topic field; as before, the field can be changed and search boxes for additional fields can be added
  • Web of Science cited reference searches must now be selected from a drop-down menu above the search box
  • The UC-eLinks icon to access full text is now found under a button labelled “Full Text” on the search results and article record pages
  • Search details are visible after clicking on a link labelled “More” under the “You searched for” heading on the search results page
  • An “Add to Marked List” button replaces the former icon on the search results page
  • A “Create Citation Alert” link and icon replace the former button on article pages
