Cited reference searching is the process of determining what publications have cited a previously published item. Tracking cited references can be valuable for a variety of reasons:
This guide charts the methods in which a UWM researcher can perform cited reference searching. Some databases,such as Google Scholar and Web of Knowledge provde a “Cited By” hotlink for quick identification. Others rely on indexed “Works Cited” lists or offer searchable full-text documents through which citations can be gleaned.
For assistance in identifying the resources most relevant to you, request an individual research consultation for yourself or a more formal workshop for a group using the UWM Libraries Workshop Request Form.
