With a cited reference search sometimes known as a citation search, you are either looking at the citations other people have used in their research to find books, journal articles, conference papers etc that might be relevant to your research or you look to see who else has cited that work in their research.

The database Web of Science has a cited reference search option. Go to Web of Science, change the basic search option to Cited Reference search and you can find articles that cite a person's work. The suppliers of Web of Science have a video tutorial.

The database Scopus allows you to search the references listed in an article. They have a tutorial in the help section of their website called Searching for Cited References with more help.

Google Scholar has a cited by feature, so you can see who cited a particular article or paper.
