All Times Cited Counts
The All Times Cited Counts displays the number of times the record was cited by other items from within Web of Science products.
Duplicate records across our citation indexes are only counted once. However, a record of a document can appear in multiple product databases. The citation indexes include:
All Times Cited Counts Table
This table (on the Full Record page) breaks down the citation counts from across all product databases within the Web of Science platform. This count is seen from wherever you are in the world. We keep this value consistent across all our citation indexes. Take note that the table may include citation counts from products not in your institution's subscription.

How We Count Citing Publications
We count citations from the reference list in journals, conference proceedings, book series, data sets, and other papers that are indexed in:
Citing article counts are for all years and all citation indexes in our citation indexes - not just for the current year and indexes included in your subscription (which may be smaller).
Moreover, we do not count the same reference (duplicate cites) more than once from a single source. For instance, if an author cites a paper five times in the body of an article (abbreviated in-text citations), we only process and count a reference once.
The methodology for calculating the Times Cited count is applied for all records and for all subscriptions. If you view Times Cited for a record from anywhere in the world, the value is always the same.
Times Cited Count - Results and Full Record Page Count
The number of citing articles you can view on the Citing Articles page may be smaller than the number listed in the Times Cited count on the Results and Full Records pages if your institution's subscription does not include all years and all citation indexes.
Footnotes and Endnotes
We will process and count citations in footnotes and endnotes, but we only count a citation once regardless of whether it appears in both a footnote and in a reference list.
English and Non-English Citations
Some citations may be presented in both English and also in another language within the same reference list. These are known as duplicate citations. As a rule, we provide the English citation provided it has the same amount or more information than the foreign citation.
Source Articles and Cited Articles
Keep in mind the difference between source articles and cited articles. Source articles are from journals that we have indexed in the product. Every source article has a Full Record that you can access if you have a subscription to that product database.
Some examples of source records include:
Times Cited Link
The Times Cited link that appears on the Results, Full Record, and Cited References pages takes you to a Citing Articles page for the product database that you are currently searching.
The Times Cited link that appears in the right-hand column of a Full Record includes the Times Cited count from across all Web of Science citation indexes. The link takes you to the All Databases Citing Articles page.
Access to records is limited to your institution's subscription.
