Q. How can I find all the articles that have cited one specific article?


One way to find articles that are highly relevant to the one you are reading or citing is to find out which published works have cited the piece. Web of Science and Scopus are two databases that allow you to view the # of times cited, sort by times cited, or view the specific articles that cited the work. Additionally, both may be used to see how many times a specific author has been cited.


Web of Science

Go to http://utdallas.edu/library and click the Databases tab. Then, go to ‘W’ and scroll down to Web of Science on the following page.



When searching Web of Science for articles, you’ll find a linked number for “Times Cited” to the right of each article, and that will tell you specifically what published works have cited it. You can also expand “Usage Count” to see views (used, but not necessarily cited).



When searching on a topic, you can sort the articles by "Times Cited." Sorting options are at the top of your result list.


Additionally, there is a filter on the left when you search articles, that allows you to view by “highly cited in the field” or “hot papers in the field.”


It is also possible to search particular authors for times cited. Just click “Cited Reference Search” at the top of Web of Science's landing page and then change your search parameters to Cited Author or Title. Note: Ensuring you have the correct author can be challenging for common names!



Click the letter ‘S’ from our Databases tab and scroll to find SCOPUS.

From the Document Search field, enter keywords to find articles, or a title if you have one in mind (1).

Notice you can also click to search for a specific Author here (2).



In our search results, we can see Times Cited to the right of an article and click that number to see the documents that have cited this paper. You could also select the box next to an article and choose “View cited by” at the top of the results.



Looking for the highly cited ones? Use the “Sort On” feature and choose “Cited By - Highest" (pictured in the upper-right corner in the image above).
