From July 17th there will be a new version of Web of Knowledge – the platform which brings you Web of Science, Medline, Journal Citations Report and other databases. You will probably only see a few stylistic changes at first, but new features in the ‘engine room’ include upgrades to Author Finder, the Citation report and a much improved search facility. For instance, linguistic search variants for U.K. and U.S.A. spelling such as colour/color will be automatically picked up. Searchers can also use left-hand truncation - in this example *oxide will also retrieve references to peroxide. And finally, Web of Knowledge has also introduced ‘lemmatization’ which isn’t another word for experiments on lemmings, but another way of saying that, for example, a search for mouse will pick up references to mice!
