ISI Web Of Knowledge Update
The Web of Knowledge / Web of Science resource from ISI has again dramatically expanded their historical searching capability. A few years ago, they shifted their earliest date to 1945, and we were impressed with that. Now they have shifted it back to 1900, an absolutely astonishing feat. In the database you would select for searching:
Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED)--1900-present
This will dramatically improve access to formative research, and is a very exciting resource for those tracking the intellectual heritage of their research concepts. Obviously, this is an absolute must for scientific historians of any sort.
