Ask a Librarian


I would like to know how to prioritize search results by number of citations.

I have previously used Scopus to do this.

UNC-CH Libraries started two year trial access to Scopus in July 2013.

The capability to search a topic and see the articles that cite each of the search results is also a major feature of Web of Knowledge (Web of Science--ISI). This database is linked in the upper right hand corner of the HSL homepage. If you use the Clinical Reference guide from hospital work stations it is in the middle of the top left hand box.

After you enter your search, sorting the results by Times Cited is an option in the Sort drop down box located on the upper right hand side of the screen. See attached image.

The Analyze Results and Citation Report are also interesting features of this database.

Let us know if you have more questions about using Web of Knowlege to do your work.
