New tool from Thomson Reuters : Data Citation Index

Web of Science

The Data Citation Index on the Web of Science provides a single point of access to research data from repositories across disciplines and around the world.

Data Citation Index fully indexes a significant number of the world’s leading data repositories of critical interest to the scientific community, including over two million data studies and datasets. The records for the datasets, which include authors, institutions, keywords, citations and other metadata, are connected to related peer-reviewed literature indexed in the Web of Science™.

Through linked content and summary information, this data is displayed within the broader context of the scholarly research, enabling users to gain perspective that is lost when data sets or repositories are viewed in isolation.
