Major Databases

  • INSPEC
    The INSPEC database, produced by the Institution of Electrical Engineers is an excellent database for information in physics, electrical engineering, computers and control engineering, and information technology. INSPEC indexes 3,500 journals and 1,500 conferences.
  • ISI Web of Knowledge
    The ISI Web of Knowledge is a Web-based platform that integrates several databases: Derwent innovations index; ISI current contents connect; ISI essential science indicators; ISI journal citation reports; ISI proceedings; ISI web of science and ISI highlycited.com. It extends and deepens the research coverage available through one resource by integrating journal, patent, proceedings, and life sciences literature with Web resources and other scholarly data. It also supports citation research via
  • ISI Web of Science
    Online version of the 5 separate ISI indexes: Arts & humanities citation index; Science citation index; Social sciences citation index; Current chemical reactions and Index Chemicus. Allows citation research and the search of impact factors of journals.
  • Polymer Library (Rapra Abstracts Database)
    an online database dedicated exclusively to information on rubbers, plastics, adhesives and polymeric composites. There are over 820,000 records in the database, from 1972 to the present, covering commercial, marketing, technical and academic aspects of the rubber and plastics industries. The file is updated every two weeks with the addition of approx. 1400 new abstracts.

It includes journal articles, book chapters, patents, conference proceedings, technical reports, substance database and dissertations covered in Chemical Abstracts as well as articles currently being indexed, book reviews and biographical information.
 

Get Citations

Web of Science

  • Connect to the database Web of Knowledge
  • Once you are in Web of Knowledge, click on the tab for "Web of Science"
  • In the middle of the search template, you will see a hyperlink for "Author Finder". Please click on it. You will then need to go through several steps:
  1. Enter author name: E.g. enter "Ho" as last name, "J" as first initial and "CM" as middle initials. Click on the "Next" button.
  2. Select author variant, and then click on the "Next" button.
  3. Select subject category: If the author's publications might fall under different subject disciplines, select all. And then, click on the Next button.
  4. Select institution: Tick those institutions which the author is or have been affiliated with. And then click on the "Finish Now" button.
  • Click on the "Create Citation Report" hyperlink. You will then get data such as number of publications, times cited and the h-index.

 

Scopus 

  1. Access Scopus
  2. Click on the "Author Search" tab.
  3. Enter the last name and the initials. E.g. "Ho" as last name, "J.C.M." as initial. Please also tick the checkbox for "Show exact matches".
  4. You may then see a list of authors with variant name formats. For the above example, you will find two author records. If you refer to the record which belongs to this author, and click on the "Details" link, you will find the citation analysis data, including the number of publications, times cited, h-index. E.g. For this author, there are 28 publications receiving 191 citations and the h-index is 9.

Note: As there may be publications by other authors with the same name, or variant forms of the same name, perhaps there are two things that you may wish to do at this stage:

  • To make sure that entries under variant author names are included in the analysis: Click open "Find unmatched authors" and check if there are other forms of this name. If there are entries that refer to this author, tick the checkbox against the entry. Then, click on the "Group with author" button. These publications will then be added to perform an aggregate analysis.
  • To make sure that all documents included have been written by this author and not by someone else under the same name: Click on the number against "Document". Go through the list and mark those which belong to this author. After this, click on the "Citation Tracker" button. A new analysis will be performed, and you will get a new figure for "Cited By' and h-index.
