RESEARCH DATABASES FOR CITED REFERENCE SEARCHING

Cited Reference Searching assists the researcher in determining if a scholarly publication has been subsequently cited by another publication. Some research databases track citations with shared indexing via an icon or "hot button;" others enable the researcher to identify specific authors or citations within indexed Reference or Works Cited lists. Full-text research databases have the potential to further identify cited references. Refer to the "Help" and "FAQ" guides within each database for the most effective results.

See "Journal Impact Factors" or "Cited Reference Searching."
