Citation Searching

Class Description

Citation Searching: Web of Science and Google Scholar

Want to know how often your work is referenced in other papers? Would you like to receive alerts whenever you are cited? Want to know the most frequently-cited papers on a topic of interest? We can show you this, and more at a special “Citation Searching” workshop. Databases covered will include Science Citation Index/Social Science Citation Index and Google Scholar. The differences and strengths of both will be explored in this hands-on workshop.

GOAL: To provide an overview and teach practical skills in the use of citation searching databases.

OBJECTIVES: By the end of this class participants will be able to:

  • Perform a citation search by author and by article in at least one database.
  • Create an alert to notify of new articles citing a particular author or article.
