The Book Citation Index (BCI), accessed via Web of Science, includes scholarly books and book series from a variety of commercial and university presses, including Elsevier, Johns Hopkins University Press and the University of Chicago Press.  Books are carefully selected based on well-defined criteria.

The complete list of books and publishers included can be found here.

The BCI tracks the number of times books and book chapters are cited by journals, conference proceedings, and other books.

The BCI has two parts: Book Citation Index for Science and Book Citation Index for Social Sciences & Humanities.
