Publication Date: 2005-08-01

About This Guide

This Guide includes information about the three major interdisciplianary citation ecosystems: Web of Science (via Thomson-Reuters/ISI), Scopus (via Elsevier/ScienceDirect), and Google Scholar (freely available via Google). WSU currently has access to all three services. It also includes information about alternative methods for measuring  the reach of scholarship (altmetrics).


Find Your Citations Workshop: 2pm-4pm Thursday 2/20/14 in Terrell Library 105 (just inside from the CUB tunnel) - we'll look at Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and other databases, and discuss author disambiguation tools such as ORCID and Researcher ID as well as workflows for putting it all together.  Contact Lorena O'English  at for more information, or for individual appointments or scheduling group classes.
