Web of Science

Science Citation Index各大高校的图书馆数据资源里都有 但是不一定全部能下载,要看学校购买的使用情况。教育网服务范围内不需专门注册(大学图书馆每年都要投资数百万做建设,购买Web of Science 是必须的,好么!)

The Science Citation Index is available in the library data resources of all universities, but not all resources can be downloaded, which depends on the use rights purchased by the university. There is no need for special registration within the education network (university libraries are invested millions of dollars every year for its development, and buying web of science is a must, ok?).


However, when logging in without any education network, there would appear the interface below: here comes the problem, how to enter without an account?

答案是:万能的某宝,15到300不等可以享受一个月到永久的软件服务。很多孩子问,web of science可以干嘛,它绝不是用来下文章的!它绝不是用来下文章的!它绝不是用来下文章的!(重要的话说三遍)作为一个权威的数据库,那它到底是用来干嘛滴?

The answer is: an omnipotent Xbao, charging from ¥15 to ¥300, it can provide the software service for a month even permanent time. Many students may ask, what can the web of science do? It's not for downloading articles! As an authoritative database, what on earth is it for?

好吧,讲那么多,并没有什么用,Web of Science的正确打开方式是告诉你怎么发文章,怎么毕业,怎么评职称。

Well, let’s put it in a direct way, the correct way to use web of science is to learn how to post articles, how to graduate and how to promote academic titles.

如果是高级玩家,那可以利用爬虫在web of science 上获取更多资源,只有你想不到的,没有做不了的。推荐一个入门级爬虫博客,对于入门很有帮助。

If you are a high-level player, you can use the crawler to get more resources on the web of science. There is nothing you can't do but think about. Recommend a entry-level crawler blog, which is very helpful for start.



Other search engines


If none of these is what you want, then let's keep it simple. Many of them are already available such as the familiar Xiaomuchong, and there is a discussion section reserved for more tips.



MadSci also has its own SCI search engines, but it focuses more on medical biology.
