Big news! We now have the "Century of Science" at Washington University. The science section of Web of Science Core Collection now includes 1900-present source documents.
We also have added access to Essential Science Indicators (ESI) and Journal Citation Reports (JCRWeb) via the InCites platform. ESI is a specialized tool for the highest ranked, recent papers in science and social science. It can answer questions such as:
- Which institutions are in the top 1% in my field?
- Where do articles from WU rank in my field?
- My paper is cited x times; how does that compare with other papers in my field?
Author ranking is problematic when last names and initials are not unique. My favorite use for ESI so far is the new ESI Top Papers filter which now appears in the left column when you do a subject search in Web of Science. This is a quick way to limit to recent highly cited and/or "hot" papers which might be the best place to start for searchers who are faced with too many articles to read.

Google Scholar Button anyone? I haven't tried this browser add-on (for Firefox or Chrome) yet myself but I know Google Scholar is very handy and popular among many students and researchers so I've snagged a couple of posts about it: It’s ok to be lazy with the Google Scholar Button and Google Scholar Button vs Lazy Scholar. I would welcome a guest post or would share your experiences if you send them to me.
