Self-citations refer to cited references that contain an author name that
matches the name of the author of a citing article.
Sometimes it is desirable to eliminate self-citations from the results of a
Cited Reference Search. This can be done by combining a Cited Reference Search
with a search by the source author.
Perform a Cited Reference Search to find
items that cite the works of a particular author. Ensure that you complete both
steps of a Cited Reference Search.
Go to the Search page. Enter the name of the same author in the Author field.
Click the Search button.
Go to the Advanced Search page.
Combine the two searches you just completed in a Boolean NOT expression (for
example, #1 NOT #2). The results of the Search (the items
written by the author) should be the set on the right-hand side of the operator.
