Last Updated: Jan 25, 2022     Views: 6

When you find an older journal article (usually more than 6 months old) you can check within the database to see how many newer articles in the database used the article you are looking at to write their newer article. 

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 the article you have picked, click on the link that typically reads “Times cited” or “Cited by.”  Here are some examples: 

EBSCOhost: Times cited (1) 

Google Scholar: Cited by (1) 

ProQuest: Cited by (1)
