Citation searching

Learning outcomes

Follow the trail of scholarly communication...

Select a relevant, central reference and then check publications that:

  • are cited in this central reference, as listed in the reference list. This allows you to go back in time and identify publications that the authors used in their article.
  • have cited this central reference, allowing you to go forward in time, and discover more recent articles that built on the work of the central reference.

Tip: You can also track the research outputs and citation activity of a particular author’s published work.
