As a part of Web of Science, the Social Sciences Citation Index is a multidisciplinary database indexing more than 1,700 social sciences journals spanning 50 disciplines, as well as relevant references from over 3,300 scientific and technical periodicals. It is international in scope. Because the information about each article includes the article's cited reference list (i.e., the bibliography), you can also search for articles that cite a particular author or work. Searching for cited references often locates relevant articles that cannot be found through traditional searching techniques.

Leads to citations with bibliographical references for articles from over 1,700 journals. Many of the references include author-prepared abstracts.
