The Web of Science interface was upgraded in July 2021. Full details - including training videos and supporting materials - are on this Clarivate Analytics support page.    

The Web of Science is cross-indexed with Google Scholar. Reciprocal links allow users to run the same search across both platforms, locating full texts where available. Cross-indexing is explained on this page. The Web of Science, published by Clarivate Analytics, also provides tools for advanced search, citation analysis, rankings' reports and bibliometrics.

Journal inclusion criteria are explained on this Clarivate Analytics page. Journal Citation Reports are explained at this link.
