Cited reference searching is a method of finding articles that have cited other published research. There is a direct subject relationship between a source article and its references. Because many databases index each citation listed in a bibliography, it is possible to search the cited references. It is possible to follow a particular cited reference, or cited author, forward in time to find more current articles that have also cited a particular publication.
Web of Knowledge or Web of Science of the Citation Indexes
