Handle Thomson Reuters Web of Science™ export files

Project description

# wosfile

[![Build Status](]( [![Coverage Status](](

wosfile is a Python package designed to read and handle data exported from Thomson Reuters Web of Scienceâ„¢. It supports both tab-delimited files and so-called ‘plain text’ files.

Pros: * It has no requirements beyond Python 3.6+ and the standard library. * Completely iterator-based, so useful for working with large datasets. At no point should we ever have more than one single record in memory. * Simple API: usually one needs just one function wosfile.records_from().

Cons: * Pure Python, so might be slow. * At the moment, wosfile does little more than reading WoS files and generating Record objects for each record. While it does some niceties like parsing address fields, it does not have any analysis functionality.

## Other Python packages

The following packages also read WoS files (+ sometimes much more): * [WOS+]( * [metaknowledge]( * [wostools](

Other packages query WoS directly through the API and/or by scraping the web interface: * [pywos]( (elsewhere called [wos-statistics]( * [wos]( * [wosclient](
