How do I find full text from Web of Science?
Web of Science also known as ISI Web of Science is a abstract and indexing database on the web of knowledge platform (other databases on same platform includes BIOSIS Previews, Zoological Record etc), this means it does not have the full-text of all the entries it lists. You may be able to access the full-text of the item you need via a full-text database or electronic journal subscribed by the library. Do note that despite this NUS Libraries does not have access to everything listed in Web of Science.
So how do you check to see if you can download the full-text of the article you want?
Select "Find it!@NUSLibraries". When you click on it, you may be sent directly to the article. If the link breaks, see this faq.
However, occasionally, you will see something like this (some options might not appear).
1. If possible click on the "Read Article" link. This should bring you to the article page. This should almost always get you the full text. If it does not, please report it to us.
2. Sometimes there will be no "Read Article" link or it doesn't work, but there may be a "Browse Journal" or "Browse Issue" link. If so click on that, it will bring you to the online journal page but not directly to the article , you will have to browse or search for the specific article to find it. This should almost eventually get you the full text. If it does not please report it to us.
3. Lastly click on the "By ISSN" , "By ISBN" or "By Title" (if it exists) . This may allow you to find print copies of the journal or book, or in rare cases online versions. This may not get you the full text.
4. Lastly Click on "Search Google Scholar", you may be able to find a free online version. This will may not get you the full text.
If none of these options work, it means the library may not have a copy either online or in print. You can try to request for the article via document delivery service if it is available to you.
