WEB OF SCIENCE
THE original citation research source and, along with Google Scholar, the most interdisciplinary and most comprehensive citation resource available to UC researchers.

SCOPUS

Another resource frequently used for citation analysis and journal ranking statistics. The Scopus claims to be the "largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research."

GOOGLE SCHOLAR
An interdisciplinary source of citation research but heavily skewed to the sciences and unpredictable in its coverage.
