Citation searching (also known as cited reference searching) allows you to search the literature, starting from your known reference, to locate new articles which cite your known reference in their bibliographies (the list of references usually found at the end of chapters or journal articles).

Citation searching also allows you to see how many times a particular author or article has been cited by others.
Go to Web of Science and click on Essential Science Indicators > Scientists Menu > By Name.

Go to Business Source Ultimate and click on Cited References on the green tool bar. You can search by author or by title, source, and keyword to get cited references.

Other sources that allow citation searching include:

Go to JSTOR, Perform a search. When viewing a result, you will find on the right of the screen the number of items who cited that item at JSTOR and also at Google Scholar.
