Using "Cited by" with Google Scholar

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
