Getting Better Results with Web of Science

A guide to Web of Science and some of its features.

Related records

When you are looking at a specific record in Web of Science, you will see cited references listed at the top right, then a link to "view Related Records"[highlighted area]. These are other works that have cited references IN COMMON with the work represented by the citation you are examining. They are often relevant, and since WoS doesn't have a standardized vocabulary, it is a way of finding other related materials.



As shown below, when you click on "Related Records" you'll get a screen that shows how many cited references the other works have in common with the one you were looking at; you can find the new articles in the same way as you would the first.
