Arts and Humanities Citation Index is a subset of Web of Science within Web of Knowledge. Web of Science includes access to Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and Arts & Humanities Citation Index. These three databases can be searched separately, in any combination, or all at once. They are unique in that the user can search to find which articles have cited a certain author or article. This technique of doing research, called 'pearl growing,' allows researchers to find articles that are related to an earlier work. Often this technique turns up articles that are not found through traditional subject and keyword searches.
