Who's Cited YOU

You can use Web of Science to find out where your published work has been cited

Note: Web of Science provides citations within iSi publications.

Web of Science is accessed through the library's proxy at

  1. Choose Web of Science [Go]
  2. Select General Search.
  3. Enter the following information:
  • Author.  Important: use author’s last name and first initial followed by an asterisk, just as indicated.
    Example: BERRY I*
    You can use OR, but not AND.
    Example: BERRY I* OR OHARE S*

OPTIONAL FEATURES(Note: Many searchers find adding other information works less effectively than simply using author name and initial.)

  • Source Title (Journal name) Many searchers find this works less effectively than simply using author name and first initial as indicted. For best results follow the abbreviation conventions used by iSi in their full source titles list (a link is provided).
  • Address. If you'd like to limit your search to documents originating on this campus, you can. For NPS try using the following abbreviations:

USN Postgrad Sch, OR NPS OR Navy OR Postgrad OR Monterey

For other institutional names, check the “abbreviations help” link.
