  • Run a topic or title search or use the Cited Reference Search feature to see who’s cited an interesting article that you probably found in PubMed
  • You can also use the search interface to find other literature that is not in PubMed because it contains citations from not only PubMed but also arts, social sciences, and humanities databases
  • This database does NOT have index terms or descriptors assigned to any citations. Web of Science uses only keywords.
  • Searches education literature; will include some citations that were in PubMed, but offers a whole lot more than just articles: journals, books, reports, dissertations, etc.

  • View the descriptors assigned to each abstract to refine your search
