This feature helps you find related materials by linking to citations related to a given article. You will access this feature using “References” in an item's full record.

References


Clicking on “references” allows you to find sources either citing this item or cited in this item. Some articles also have citation counts from SciVerse Scopus (as seen below) and Web of Science.

Clicking on either the "citing this" button or the “cited in this” button displays a selection of sources. Please note that this feature does not provide complete lists of references or cited by items. You can create a detailed trail by continually clicking "cited in/citing this" buttons. Your trail will be displayed on the top of the screen and clicking on any one of the displayed items will bring you back to that spot in your trail.
