How To Use Cited Reference Search

Cited Reference Search is a way to check to see if an article you have already found has been cited by other researchers.
This enables you to push your literature search forward in time.

Change from Basic Search to Cited Reference Search and type in the first author’s name, journal the article was published in, and the year.
Web of Science is helpful and provides an abbreviation list of journal titles

Select the correct citation from your results list and click Finish Search.

Your results list will have all the literature published that has cited the article.
