Web of Science and Internet Explorer 9

How to view Web of Knowledge/Science results via Internet Explorer 9

If you use version 9.0 of the Internet Explorer Browser (IE9), you may have found that your search results are not visible within Web of Science (Web of Science is still compatible with IE7 and IE8). To counter this problem, please note the following possible solutions:

  • Using another browser: you may find it easiest to search the databases using another browser i.e. if your operating system is Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, you could use these browsers: Internet Explorer 7 or 8.0, or Mozilla Firefox 6.0. Alternatively, if your operating system is Macintosh OS X 10.5 or 10.6, you could search using these browsers: Safari 4.0 or Mozilla Firefox 6.0.
  • If you prefer to use IE9: you should be able to get around this problem by clicking on the ‘compatibility view’ icon/button which is located to the immediate right of the web address bar when you’re within Web of Knowledge/Science. If you are unable to see a 'compatibility view' icon, you will need to activate it by following these steps:
    1. Click on Tools menu
    2. Click on Compatibility View Settings
    3. Type 'isiknowledge.com' in the textbox and click on Add
