Web of Science new interface live today PLUS training date

The Web of Science has a new interface from January 12 2014.

The new platform is the result of a user-centric redesign to provide a simplified, intuitive search with clearer results and linked data through a single interface. It will now be easier to start searching, review results and discover related research with linked data.  The page layout is improved, with clear identification of the database searched; navigation is simplified, search fields can be expanded with one click and linking to full text is made easier too.

There will be a training session introducing the new Web of Science platform (click on “Forthcoming courses”) and Web of Science features and new content on Web of Science, including the Data Citation Index on

7 February 2014 at 11:00 am to 13:00 pm
