Web of Knowledge quarterly update 16/07/06
JIBS have been asking for some time for an improvement to author searching on Web of Science so we were very pleased to see the MIMAS news concerning Sunday's upgrade:
"Author Finder -
You will be able to distinguish between authors of similar names, helping you to find the author you are looking for faster."
Note also the announcement regarding phrase searching. Thomson are adopting the Google approach. A search for 'needle exchange' used to retrieve the exact phrase 'needle exchange'. It will now retrieve 'needle AND exchange'. For an exact phrase search you will have to use quotes: "needle exchange"
