Search arXiv preprints together with Web of Science (for math/computer science) Monday, 30 January 2006 4:06 pm

Posted by Dongmei in database features, databases, open access.

I’ve blogged about CrossSearch for biology, CrossSearch for physics/astronomy in Web of Knowledge today in my other two posts.

For mathematics, and/or computer science, you can search the ePrint archives arXiv Mathematics, and/or arXiv Computer Science, together with Web of Science, of course, the results are listed separately for different collections/databases.

Mathmaticians are another category of researchers that use preprints often.

Just a fyi, 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, click on “go”, check the external collection(s)/databases you’d like to search.
