Things You Can Do with Your Account

Registration allows access to these convenient features available through the Web of Science:

  • Automatically sign in every time you access Web of Science.
  • Select a starting application, which will enable you to start your session in a specific database rather than on the Web of Science Core Collection page.
  • Update your personal information including username and password.
  • Save searches to the Web of Science server that can be opened later at any time.
  • Set up search history alerts. The alert automatically searches the latest update to the database, and then sends the results by e-mail. This feature requires a subscription to the relevant database.
  • Set up citation alerts, which notifies the user by e-mail whenever an article in the Citation Alerts list has been cited by a new article. This feature requires a subscription to Web of Science Core Collection.
  • Create and maintain custom journal lists and set up Table of Contents e-mail alerts. This feature requires a subscription to Current Contents Connect.
  • Add references to an EndNote library directly from Web of Science Core Collection and other Web of Science databases.
