In this activity you will use Google Scholar. You will find out whether your article has been cited by other authors since it was published.
Go through this page in order. Read the text, watch the silent video, and follow the instructions as you go.
Use the "Cited by" link in Google Scholar to see who has cited an article since it was published.
This video walks through how you can use the "Cited by" link in Google Scholar.
"Cited by" allows you to do what's called "citation tracking." With citation tracking, you can look for articles and other sources that have cited this article.
This can be extremely useful when you are conducting a literature search, looking for articles and other sources of information. Just like looking at the references list for articles, looking to see who is citing an article can show you a new set of sources related to your topic. This video has no narrative audio; descriptive captions are available.
If you have further questions about how to use the "Cited by" link for searching you can contact the Lavery Librarians at LibraryReference@sjf.edu.
You can find the Lavery Library link to Google Scholar on Databases A-Z:
Google Scholar provides a way to broadly search for scholarly literature. You can use it to search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites.
But, Fisher students have to connect to Google Scholar through Lavery Library.
Why? If you go to www.scholar.google.com and start searching, you'll hit paywalls. You will be able to read the abstract or first few lines of articles, but then the website will ask you to pay in order to continue reading.
Don't pay for articles! Connect to Google Scholar through Lavery Library to unlock free access to articles in Google Scholar.
