There may be more than one S. Anandakrishnan, or R. Alley, in the world. One way to tell them apart is to check theaddress, which is also listed in the Web of Science. The Web of Science actually tries to help you. If you make sure toclick the tab near the upper left that says “Web of Science” rather than “All Databases” before you do the search, itprovides a “View Distinct Author Sets” option. In this case, don’t mess with that. Just search in the Web of Science onAlley R, and find the paper by T.B. Humensky, R. Alley, and others from 2004. Is this the same Dr. Alley who helps teachGeosc10 at Penn State? (If you find a Penn State address in the list below, you may assume that it is the same Dr. Alleyyou know, and if you don't find a Penn State address, you may assume that the author is a different Dr. Alley; we won'tmake you click through other Dr. Aley references to make sure)4.As described in the introduction to this exercise, citations are very important in the scientific literature. They show whereideas or techniques came from, who has done similar work, and more. The Web of Science used to be called the ScienceCitation Index, and started out keeping track of citations in scientific papers. This allows you to work forward and back.For example, search on Alley RB, and find the paper from 2004 first-authored by then-graduate-student (now professor)Byron R. Parizek, published in Quaternary Science Reviews. This is an important paper on the future of ice sheets andsea level. If you click on the blue title of the paper, you will see “Times Cited:” in black, followed by a number in blue(that number increases over time), and “References: 67” with “67” in blue. Clicking on the blue “67” will tell you all ofthe papers that Byron Parizek relied on in preparing his paper. Clicking on the blue number after “Times Cited” will tellyou all of the papers who have cited Byron Parizek’s paper, and thus are relying on it. Click on the “Times Cited” number.
