CrossSearch Agricola, PubMed, and preprints with Web of Science (for biology) Monday, 30 January 2006 2:20 pmPosted by Dongmei in database features, databases, open access.
Have you used the CrossSearch feature in ISI’s Web of Knowledge platform? It’s a great feature that you should explore if you haven’t. It lets you crosssearch Web of Science with other external collections/databases.
For biology, you can search Agricola, PubMed, together with Web of Science, of course, the results are listed separately for different collections/databases. For those folks that use preprints frequently, you can also add arXiv Quantitative Biology to the list of databases that you wish to search. (If you’ve never used arXiv.org e-Print archive, here’s some facts about it: as of today, it provides open access to 354,161 e-prints in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Quantitative Biology. It’s owned, operated and funded by Cornell University, also partially funded by NSF.)
Here’s how to get to it, after you click on Web of Science on our databases page, choose “CrossSearch” from the pulldown menu on the top of the Web of Knowledge platform, and click on “go”. Choose whatever external collection(s)/databases you’d like to search.
For your convenience, I’ve included a screenshot of the CrossSearch main screen (click on the thumbnail below to see the actual screenshot).
