Cited Reference Search: Step 2 of 2
This page displays cited references that contain the search information you
entered on the first Cited Reference Search
The Citing Articles count is the total number of citations for the current
product database that you are searching. The count includes all years
and all editions in Web of Science. In BIOSIS Citation
Index and the Chinese Science Citation Database the count includes
all years in the product database.
When you complete a Cited Reference Search, the number of citing items you
retrieve may be smaller than the number listed in the Citing Articles column if
your institution's subscription to the product does not include all years and
all citation indexes. In other words, the count in the Citing Articles column is
not limited to your institution's current product entitlements and year limits.
However, your access to records in the product database is limited to your

About Cited References
Every reference listed on the Cited Reference Search page has been cited by
at least one record indexed in the product.
The primary author of a work always displays in the Cited Author column
followed by the searched author if the searched author is a secondary author and
if the source record is within the product database.
If a searched author is a secondary author of a work, then the system
does not display this author's name in the Cited Author column if the
cited work is found in a different product database. For example, you perform a
cited reference search in Web of Science but the record is only found
in BIOSIS Citation Index. In this instance, an Information
icon displays next to the primary author's name, which says:
"Your author is a secondary author on this cited work, and was found in
another Web of Knowledge collection. If the collection is available in
your subscription a "View Record" link will appear in the View Record column."
The name of the product database appears below the View Record link. If your
institution has a subscription to the product database in which the record is
found (in this example, BIOSIS Citation Index), click the View
Record link to go to the product database to view the Full Record of
the found cited reference.
When selecting your references from the Cited Reference Search page, keep in
mind the following rules.
Source records contain the names of all authors including the primary author
and all secondary authors.
A View Record link allows you to view the full record in
another Web of Knowledge product if you have a subscription to that
Non-source records (records that are indexed but do not appear in any product
database) contain only the name of the primary author.
View Record Link
Click View Record to go to the Full Record of a cited item.
If a cited reference cannot be expanded by clicking on the Show Expanded Title
link, and the reference has no View Record link, then:
The item is a reference to a work published outside the range of your
subscription. For example, if you subscribe to the 10 most recent years and the
reference is to an article published in 1982, the reference will not have a
View Record link.
The item is a reference to a work published in a journal that is not indexed
in the product database. There is no Full Record for the item.
The item is a reference to a book, a book chapter, a thesis, or another type
of publication that is not indexed in the product. There is no Full Record for
The item contains incorrect or missing information, and therefore, cannot be
linked to a Full Record. It is most likely a variation of another cited
reference that is linked to a Full Record.
