Data Citation Index small

"Access an array of data across subjects and regions, providing a comprehensive picture of research output to understand data in context and maximize research efforts.  The Data Citation Index on the Web of Knowledge platform provides a single point of access to quality research data from repositories across disciplines and around the world.

Through linked content and summary information, this data is displayed within the broader context of the scholarly research, enabling users to gain perspective that is lost when data sets or repositories are viewed in isolation. These connections allow researchers to efficiently access to an array of data across subjects and regions, providing a comprehensive picture of research output, to maximize research efforts and accurately assess importance.  Research data considered for inclusion include data studies, data sets and microcitations deposited in a recognized repository." (Publisher's description)  Dates of coverage: 1900-present.
