This is a wonderful development, since the great subject indexing of BIOSIS is made even more effective with the Refine Results options of the Web of Knowledge search interface. In addition, citation indexing is linked from Web of Science to the BIOSIS search results so every BIOSIS article that has been cited by an article indexed in Web of Science is so tagged.
Start exploring the new options and content from the Science Citation Index link on the science library's web site. Click on the Select A Database tab once you are at the Web of Knowledge site.
