And now I want to walk you through
a practical information search in the Web of Science Core Collection. There is one big difference between
searching for information in the Web of Science Core Collection and searching
information, let's say, on the Internet. All information which we can find
the Web of Science Core Collection is split between various information fields. It's because it's formatted in
the form of the so-called metatext. So, in the information field Topic,
we can find the information from the titles of the publications, the list
of the keywords and publication abstracts. When we look for information about the
authors, we need to use the Authors field. When we're looking for publications
from a certain year, then obviously we are looking at the publication
years information field, and so on. So please, before you start
an information search, think about what kind of information you're looking
and use appropriate search fields. We can combine several search fields
with simple operators and, or, and not. So we can use very simple searches,
or we can build very complex and detailed searches in the Web
of Science Core Collection. As an example, I want to perform
a fairly simple information search. And my topic will be 3D printing. As you know, it's a very exciting and
promising development of technology, which is probably going to change the
world around us in the next few decades. So let's find out what
are the most popular, the most in demand publications on
3D printing in the world right now. And again, when we are looking for publications in the Web of
Science Core Collection, it means that we are looking for
publications from the most influential, most authoritative, technical, and
scholarly journals from around the world. So I will simply type in 3d print and
then I will put an asterisk. Why am I putting the asterisk
in the end of this word? It's because I want to get
several forms of this word. For instance,
I want to find in the results of my search the key terms 3D print, also 3D printing, 3D prints the plural form, and
other forms of the same word. Therefore, I can use the asterisk, and the asterisk can replace
any number of symbols. So, please use the asterisk
in similar cases, but also in cases when you don't know
exactly the spelling of certain term, in this case, you can use an asterisk and
it can help you with your search. And I also use the field Topic because I want to find the publications
on the topic 3D printing. So, we perform the search, and
as you can see, we have found a great number of publications,
several thousand of publication. It's not surprising because the Web
of Science Core Collection is huge. Currently it contains
information about approximately 65 million technical and
scholarly publications, and it contains over 1 billion of
references for all the publications. So it's an enormous mass of information,
and in order to find specifically the information you need,
there are special instruments in the Web of Science Core Collection that
allow you to target your search and to analyze the method of
data which you have found. Now, on the left part of the screen,
you can see the special panel. It's a Refine Results panel. Now, the Refine Results panel allows
you to analyze, for instance, to which disciplines of science and
technology specific publications belong. It can allow you to focus your search and
publications from specific dates, or publications from specific authors, or
publications from specific institutions. There are some other interesting types of information that you can
find using the Refined Results panel. For instance, you can find the information
about the funding sources. You can find out which organizations
fund a certain type of research. It's very interesting information
which you can use for analytics, or you can use simply to find the grants,
to find the money to support you own research and development of
certain products you're working on. Now, when we found the list of
publications which we are interested in, we can see which publications
have already attracted the most attention around the world. And we can do that in the Web of Science
Core Collection because it's a citation database. So, we can see how many times
certain publications have been cited by other publications in the most reputed
scholarly journals from around the world. As you can see now,
in the results of our search, we have a certain number of publications
which have been cited hundreds of times. It means that these are high
quality publications and there is something in these publications
which really have captured the attention of other scholars, engineers and
specialists from various countries. And you see that several publications
are marked with special symbols, a symbol of little golden trophy. You can see it on the right side,
to the right from the publication. That means that this
publications belongs to 1%, the most cited publications in a certain
year, in a certain discipline. So those are the publication leaders,
the publications which have really captured the world's attention,
and naturally, that can be of interest to you if you are interested
in development in a certain field. Not only you can find the most
cited publications, but you can constantly monitor the new
publications in this field. In order to do that, you can mark. There is a special function,
the new publication alerts. And you can use the new publication
alerts function, then either weekly or monthly, you will get alerts
of all new publications on a certain topic which
you are interested in. Similarly, you can put a citation
alert on a certain publication. If you are interested in
a certain publication, you probably are interested
in knowing who is citing it, who is using this work in their
own research and development. It's very easy to do. You choose this publication and
you mark the Citation Alert field, and then you will get regular
updates every time this specific publication is being cited. There are other types of information
that you can get from the Web of Science Core Collection. On the basis of the data in the Web
of Science Core Collection, special indices are being calculated, special indicators which show
the influence of academic journals. That's the impact factor indicator,
the major indicator accepted worldwide to measure the influence
of an academic journal. There are special indicators
used to measure the influence of certain authors, certain researchers,
and the whole research organizations. All this wealth of information
is available to you in the Web of Science Core Collection.
