Data Citation Index
The Data Citation Index provides a single point of access to quality research data from repositories across disciplines and around the world. In this index, descriptive records are created for data objects and linked to literature articles in the Web of Science. As data citation practices increase, the resource aims to provide a clearer picture of the full impact of research output, as well as to act as a significant tool for data attribution and discovery.

Combines value-added patent records from Derwent World Patents Index® with patent citation information from Patents Citation Index®.
