5 September 2012 - 10:31am by Lynn Sette

Access Web of Knowledge from anywhere at any time using your Web of Knowledge username and password.  There is no app to download or keep updated with this new mobile interface.

What do I need to install?

You do not need to install anything, simply use the Web browser on your mobile device to go to http://m.webofknowledge.com

How do I get a username and password?

You need to create a Web of Knowledge personalization account from an IP authenticated computer.  To register, go to Web of Knowledge on the Medical Library’s website (see Resources on the homepage) and click Sign-In.

Are all features available in the mobile version?

No. Most features are available, but the mobile version has the ability to search within individual products (Web of Science, Biosis, Inspec®, etc.) as well as the All Database Search. Other features include: sort, refine, email, add records to EndNote® Web, link to full text, OpenURL, view times cited counts, search history.

Can I view full text?

When using the mobile version, by IP authentication or username/password log in, your entitlements are the same as the full version.  It depends on the Medical Library’s subscriptions.

Will I automatically be IP authenticated if I am on campus?

If you are logged into the campus WiFi network and navigate to the mobile version, you will be able to view and use Web of Knowledge on your mobile device without entering your username & password. Alternatively, users can navigate to the full version and click “mobile version” in the upper right hand corner.

There are other Medical Library resources optimized for mobile devices.
