From: Graham, M., Hale, S. A., and Stephens, M. (2011) “Geographies of the World’s Knowledge”. Oxford Internet Institute & Convoco.

  * Web of Knowledge subsumes Web of Science, and includes Journal Citation Reports, Science Citation Index (1945+), Social Science Citation Index (1956+) and the Arts and Humanities Citation Index (1994+). ‘High impact’ journals, inc. around 1,300 major arts and humanities titles in Arts and Humanities Citation Index. One might keep in mind, however, the 2009 Gale Reference Review comment that… “I looked at the widely touted figures [for journal numbers] in the promotional materials [ of Web of Science and Scopus and found ] they should not be taken for granted. Many of these are incorrect and exaggerated. Their compilation has been fast and loose, sometimes making them fiction rather than fact.”
