Cited reference searching

Authors will list the books and journal articles they themselves have referred to in their research, and these are known as cited references or citations. Scopus, SciFinder Scholar and Web of Science store these references, and enable you search them. This way you can identify articles which have made a reference to a particular book or journal article.

This method of searching is the only means of searching forward from an older article or book by an author that you know about, to more recent publications on the same subject which have cited that author.
