Web of Science consists of five databases containing information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals and, just recently, conference proceeding, in all areas of research, including: the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and Science Citation Index Expanded. In addition to cited reference searching, you can search these databases by topic, author, source title, and address. It is an excellent database to use for searching interdisciplinary topics.
Let's start by conducting a basic search for articles by Vin Nardizzi.
You can also do cited reference search in the Web of Science database. Assume you discovered an interesting journal article or a book, and you want to find other articles that have cited 'your' article or book. For example, try a citation search for Judith Butler's 1988 article in Theatre Journal "Performative acts and gender constitution: an essay in phenomenology and feminist theory".
