What is Cited Reference Searching?

Cited reference searching (aka citation searching or bibliometrics) is a process used to locate instances where a particular article, book, journal or author has been cited in other publications.

This is helpful for

  • determining the scholarly impact of a work
  • keeping up with current research in a particular field
  • assessing the relative importance of a journal
  • identifying possible publishing outlets or research partners

Welcome!

This guide offers information on how and where to find out who's been citing whom.
