Last Updated: Mar 29, 2024     Views: 69

When you have an older journal article (usually more than six months old), you can find how many times the selected article is cited by other articles in the database.

In most databases, if there is a citing article, it is linked underneath the citation. Different databases may use different ways of stating it.

To see the list of articles citing your chosen article, click the link that typically reads Times cited or Cited by. Here are some examples from different databases:

EBSCOhost: Times cited (1)

Google Scholar: Cited by (1)

ProQuest: Cited by (1)

OVID: Find Citing Articles (2)
