Help on the Search in the Lists of SCI, SSCI, and A&HCI Journals
The lists of SCI, SSCI, and A&HCI journals that can be searched with this function are imported in regular intervals from the Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters) website (http://mjl.clarivate.com/). They are used here with the explicit permission of Thomson Reuters.
The search can optionally comprise all three journal lists (SCI, SSCI, and A&HCI) or only one of them. The search text can contain an ISSN, the complete or abbreviated name of a journal, or parts of the journal name. The following rules apply:
The output of the search function is limited to 100 records.
- ISSNs (International Standard Serial Numbers) must be entered in their entirety, with all eight digits and the hyphen after the fourth digit, but without the string "ISSN" (e.g., as "1234-5678").
The checkbox "Search also for related ISSNs" extends the search in the journal lists for records that are linked to the ISSN entered by a so-called "linked ISSN" (ISSN-L). A journal that appears in various formats - e.g. in print or electronically - may have different ISSNs for each format; all these formats have, however, the same ISSN-L. If only the print but not the electronic version of the journal is listed, setting this checkbox and entering the ISSN of the electronic version causes the record of the print version to be found. Warning: Activating the checkbox considerably slows down the search!
- Textual entries are interpreted as part of the name of a journal. For a search string that consists of several words or abbreviations, separated by spaces or punctuation marks, all entries are returned by default that contain these words or abbreviations in the order given, but with arbitrary text in between. The search is not case sensitive. This allows precise queries even with abbreviated journal names. For example, the search for "Appl. Phys. Lett." (or "Appl.Phys.Lett." or "Appl Phys Lett" or any other combination of spaces or punctuation marks between the three words) returns the two records:
Setting the checkbox "The search text must appear literally in the journal list" forces a literal interpretation of the search string, which must appear exactly as specified anywhere in a journal name. In either case, the search string may be immediately prefixed with the character "^", in which case it must be found at the beginning of a journal name. For example, the search string "^Appl. Phys. Lett." would have returned only the first of the above two records.
