Web of Science Cancellation

Beginning January 2018, UT Health San Antonio Library will no longer license Web of Science, an abstract and citation database.  A comparable database, Scopus, provides similar information to Web of Science. Since the Library can no longer afford to provide access to both resources, and because Web of Science was used much less often than Scopus, it was identified as a resource to discontinue. The rising cost of library resources combined with a flat resources budget resulted in this difficult decision. The Library will continue to subscribe to Journal Citation Reports (JCR) which had been integrated with the Web of Science collections.
