8 What are the THCI /TSSCI databases?
THCI is for Taiwan Humanities Citation Index. TSSCI is for Taiwan Social Sciences Citation Index. The patron can visit the THCI / TSSCI
to access these two databases.
THCI and TSSCI are databases collecting citation information from both humanities and social sciences journals articles published in Taiwan. Patrons should know that both humanities and social science journals articles are cited, and that citation analysis applied to past research results in certain subjects can help to identify research trends. Patrons also have access to the impact factor reports of journals for their reference.
