Citation Searching

Citation searching is: take a publication, and search for articles and other publications by which it is cited. This can reveal important relationships that may not be found by other ways of searching.

Many databases offer citation searching. In addition, the citation counts from Web of Science and Scopus are considered to be authoritative indicators of the research performance of an author.
