Web of Science: Results Analysis

Have you explored the Results Analysis feature in the Web of Science?

The results analysis extracts data values from a field you select and then produces a report showing the values in ranked order.

For example, suppose you search Web of Science for articles about conjunctivitis in children. You could use this feature to generate a list of authors who published articles on that subject. The authors who published the largest number of articles would be at the top of the list.

Some of the other ways to analyze the results are by: institution, country/territory, document type, institution name, language, publication year, source title, and subject category.

To perform a results analysis, click the Analyze button on any Summary Results page to go to the Results Analysis page.
