5. Look at your results for citations of interest, (see the search results example below).
Experiment with the different sort features, such as "Times Cited -- highest to lowest," and "Usage Count -- Last 180 days."
Look for the Times Cited link to the right of the citation (see the example below). If it has been cited, click on the number to see if this leads you to more citations of interest. Please Note: Older articles are more likely to have been cited than newer articles. A higher "Times Cited" number can signify a popular article, or an article of importance (Times Cited parameters). You can also click on the Usage Count below the Times Cited link (Usage Count defined).
