SSCI – Social Sciences Citation Index (via the Web of Science)Databases
The Social Sciences Citation Index is a multidisciplinary index and indexes over 3,000 social sciences journals – 1988 to present.
The Social Sciences Citation Index offers bibliographical access to a curated collection of over 3,400 journals across 58 social sciences disciplines, as well as selected items from 3,500 of the world’s leading scientific and technical journals. Being a citation index, it allows searching for articles that cite a known author or work (Cited Reference Search), as well as searching by subject, author, journal, and author. ‘Cited reference searching’ lets you track how any idea, innovation, or creative work has been confirmed, applied, improved, extended, or corrected, and discover who is citing your publication of interest.
The Social Sciences Citation Index is accessed through the Web of Science platform, with which more databases can be searched simultaneously. To search the Social Sciences Citation Index individually use the More Settings option at the foot of the Web of Science search screen.
Full-text access to articles is restricted to Open Access articles and to NON-OA articles in journals to which University Maastricht subscribes.
