Tip: Google Scholar, if accessed through the Libraries' Databases A-Z list, will use the tool to locate the full-text of articles.
Google Scholar does provide guidance of how often an article is cited.
1. To do a cited search, use the "advanced search" screen.
2. In the "exact search phrase" box type in all or the first few words of the article title.
3. In the "Author: Return articles written by:" box type in the lead authors last name.
On the results screen, the bibliographic citation of the article will appear, along with a "cited by" link underneath it.
Keep in mind these thoughts if using Google Scholar for a cited reference search:
- Google Scholar started as a source for science, technology and medicine literature, and still largely represents those fields. The representation of other fields, particularly in the humanities and related fields, may be underrepresented.
- Google Scholar will not normalize institution names or authors, so searching under variants may be necessary to do a complete search. (Binghamton University, SUNY Binghamton, State University of New York at Binghamton, SUNY Binghampton; JM Smith, John M Smith, etc)
