    Description: The Science Citation Index (SCI) is a comprehensive basic science index. It covers both English and foreign language journals in over 100 scientific disciplines. It can be used, like any bibliographic database, to identify work currently being done in the physical and biomedical sciences. It is mainly used, however, to trace related (cited) works through time, since it also indexes the footnotes or bibliographies of each paper. Topical searching is by keyword only - no controlled vocabulary is available.

    Prefer to do your own searching? Consider using Scopus for cited reference tracking from 1996 - present.
