Refine results

When faced with a long list of hits, you may want to refine the results. One option is adding a new search term in the search field under ‘Search within results for’. Alternatively, refine the results by selecting one or more criteria the results should meet. Available criteria:

Web of Science categories
Subject Areas
Document Types
Source Titles
Publication Years

The records found are classified for each criterion. Document Types, for example, shows the document types and their occurrences; articles, reviews, editorial material, letters, etcetera. You may even view which journals publish the most papers on your subject (Source Titles) or in what year the most documents have been published. Select one or more items for all desired criteria and click the button ‘Refine’ next to the criterion description.
