Why search in Web of Science?
The Web of Science database has several functionalities (such as Times Cited, References or View Related Records) which shows you related publications, thus giving you an idea, for instance, about how influential an important article has been. In addition to the citation data for a publication, you can also view the citation data for an author.
There is also an option to look up the impact factor of a scientific journal (Journal Citation Report).
