The Data Citation Index, accessed via Web of Science, provides a single point of access to quality research data from global repositories across disciplines. Use Web of Science to perform a cited reference search, where you can look up an article and see how many times it has been cited. Users may encounter content in this database the library has not purchased.
As data citation practices increase, the Data Citation Index aims to provide a clearer picture of the full impact of research output, as well as to act as a significant tool for data attribution and discovery.
