Abstract
This Observation discusses two problematic features of some of the most commonly voiced critiques against the ‘Web of Science’ (WoS) in academic human geography. First, most critical appraisals of the WoS tend to understate the diversity of the human geography research indexed in this database. Second, the portraying of academic geographers as innocent victims in this context conveniently disguises their own complicity.
