The Dalhousie Libraries currently subscribe to two major multi-disciplinary abstracting & indexing databases: Web of Science and Scopus. After a careful comparison of content, functionality and cost, the Libraries will cancel Web of Science database in 2022, since it duplicates the content and functionality from Scopus and from other subject-specific databases.
In the lead up to the cancellation of this product, we want to know more about any unique researcher use of the product, in order to manage the transition and find solutions for instances where Scopus is not a viable alternative. Other than searching Web of Science as an abstracting & indexing database to locate articles, is there any other aspect of Web of Science that is critical to your research program?
