A multidisciplinary database covering the journal literature of the sciences, arts and humanities, and the social sciences. It indexes thousands of major journals across more than 200 disciplines. Because the information stored about each article includes the article's cited reference list (often called its bibliography), users can also search the database for articles that cite a known author or work. Web of Science Core Collection includes:
Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED) --1900-present
Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) --1900-present
Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) --1975-present
