Citation Searching

Citation Searching refers to searching for articles that have cited an older publication.

Citations can be traced through the use of several tools that are available on the market. 
The three primary tools are Web of KnowledgeScopus and Google Scholar

The citation indexes are strongest in the sciences with Scopus including over 12,000 science and medicine titles and Science Citation Index over 6,100 titles.  Coverage in other fields is markedly less comprehensive.  In the social sciences Scopus covers around 2,700 titles and Social Sciences Citation Index covers around 1,700 titles.  Arts & Humanities Citation Index includes approximately 1,300 publications and is the only tool for tracking citations in those fields.

Suggestions for additions to the guide, ways to make it clearer or for new resources that would add to the depth of the library's collection are welcome.
