Digital Scholarship @ CUA: Expanding Access

The University Libraries at The Catholic University of America provides access to digital scholarship in multiple forms. This month, we are pleased to announce the acquisition of additional access to Web of Science back files! This expands access to the Arts & Humanities Index, the Social Sciences Index and the Science Index to more than 20 years of connected research.

Use Web of Science back files to:

  • Find new routes to discovery by tracing research backward in time and explore citing and cited articles that have influenced foundational research.
  • Calculate an accurate h-index by ensuring the full extent of an author’s past research is taken into account.
  • Open your institutions’ intellectual vault and increase the visibility of your full text collection and the value of your investment. [Source]

Web of Science collectively indexes … the world’s most influential scholarly journals, providing users with complete bibliographic data, searchable author abstracts, and cited references. The unique Web of Science feature–cited reference searching–allows users to navigate forward, backward, and through the multidisciplinary literature to uncover all the information relevant to their work. Cited reference searching also allows researchers to learn who is citing their work, and the impact they, or their colleagues, are having on the global research community. [Source]
