Web of Knowledge Mobile Access

Web of Knowledge have recently brought out a new mobile version of their database so now you can search for articles on the go. The mobile interface contains many of the same features; so there's all the advanced search options, you can set alerts, view your search history and send references to endnoteweb.


To get started all you need to do is go to http://m.webofknowledge.com/ from your phone and log in with your personal WoK username and password.


 If you haven't created a WoK account before just follow the steps below;




  1. From a normal PC log into MUSE and go to Web of Knowledge from the library tab.

  2. Once in Web of Knowledge click on 'sign in'.

  3. Then click 'register' to create a new account (when registering it's best to use your @sheffield email address).


You can now use your new password for the mobile interface as well as accessing all the database's advanced features. All you need to remember is to log into your new account at least every 6 months from an IP authenticated computer to ensure your account stays active.
