indexed so that you can search for specific articles by subject, author, journal, and/or author address. USC has access to three citation databases.

The Science Citation Index is a multi-disciplinary database, with searchable author abstracts, covering the journal literature of the sciences. It indexes 5,300 major journals across 164 scientific disciplines, covering approximately 2,000 more journals than its SCI print and CDROM
counterparts, with all cited references captured. The Social Sciences Citation Index is a multidisciplinary database, with searchable author abstracts, covering the journal literature of the social sciences.

It indexes 1,700 journals spanning 50 disciplines, as well as covering individually selected, relevant items from over 3,300 of the world’s leading scientific and technical journals. Arts & Humanities Citation Index is a multi-disciplinary database covering the journal literature of the arts and humanities.
