Who has Cited an Article

When you've found an article that looks like it has some great information, it's helps to know who else has cited this paper.

Knowing who has cited a paper can lead to other papers that you may not have found in your literature searching.

The Science Citation Index (aka the Web of Science) database is an ideal resource to use.

- use this icon on the Science Citation Index homepage

(1) Enter the author's name and year of publication & run the search

(2) Look for the corresponding journal that published the article & select the View Record link for that listing to get to the abstract

(3) Select Times Cited to get a listing of other articles that have cited this paper
