Cited References

View a list of documents cited by the document whose title appears at the top of the page. You display cited references when you click the References link on a Full Record page.

  • The first line of a cited record displays the first listed author of an article. Secondary authors are not listed.

  • If available, the second line displays the title of the article, which is linked to the Full Record in the product. If the record is not available, only source information is shown.

  • If available, the third line displays source information, including the name of the cited publication followed by the issue number, page numbers, and year.

Conference Proceedings

If the product finds records of conference proceedings, it will display the conference title, date, and location below the Author(s) field. You must have a subscription to one or both Conference Proceedings citation indexes to search for and to view conference records.

Find Related Records

Click the Find Related Records button to retrieve other articles that cite the same references. You can refine this search by clearing the check boxes next to references for which you do not want the citing records. The related records that you retrieve will cite only the selected references.

The assumption behind Related Records® searching is that documents that cite the same works have a subject relationship, regardless of whether their text or titles contain the same terms. The more cited references two documents share, the closer is the subject relationship.
