Unique Features Cited References
The capability to see which papers cite earlier papers, using the earlier papers as the starting point. Cited Reference Searching lets you use a given work as if it were a subject term to identify more recent articles on the same topic. For example, you can find all works that reference articles published by A. Williamson in 1995 in the Journal of Neurophysiology (J Neurophysiol).
This type of searching often locates relevant articles that cannot be retrieved through traditional subject-author searching.
Description of Database: A multidisciplinary index to journal literature of the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities covering 8,100 titles across 55 major disciplines. Web of Science consists of three databases: Science Citation Index Expanded (indexes 5,300 major journals across 164 scientific disciplines), Social Sciences Citation Index (indexes 1,700 journals spanning 50 disciplines, as well as covering individually selected, relevant items from leading scientific and technical journals), and Arts and Humanities Citation Index (indexes 1,100 of the world's leading arts and humanities journals, as well as covering individually selected, relevant items from major science and social sciences journals).

All authors of an article are included in the database, instead of only listing the principal author/researcher.
