A Web Service is a program that allows two computer systems to interact over a network. The Web of Science Web Services allows a customer’s system to request information from the Web of Science and returns a limited set of data to the requesting system.
As a subscriber to the Web of Science® the library can now access to source data for Web of Science records such as topic, title and author information with Web of Science Web Services.
