Hundreds of Intellect books added to the Web of Knowledge Book Citation Index

Some of you reading this will be aware that in October this year Thomson Reuters launched their Book Citation Index, a new resource within the Web of Knowledge platform covering 25,000 books in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

Intellect was an early adopter of the Book Citation Index and is glad to report that we now have nearly 200 of our book titles indexed through the platform. We submitted our books during the early stages in the index’s development because we believe this initiative will greatly benefit our community of authors and editors, making their research more accessible and ensuring that all citations are adequately recognized.

Thompson say the “Book Citation Index is designed to enhance the powerful discovery and analysis capabilities of Web of Knowledge by incorporating comprehensive book citation data. Researchers can search for and identify the most relevant and esteemed literature along with the 12,000 peer-reviewed journals and 150,000 conference proceedings already indexed in Web of Knowledge, enabling users to navigate the links in citations across books, journals and proceedings. Books are indexed at the chapter level, resulting in improved searches and deeper insights into the citing behavior between books and the wider world of scholarly research”.
