Cited reference searching is a technique that will help you locate additional articles for your research and allows you to identify more recent articles which cite the original article that you located.
Here are the two multidisciplinary Manchester Met Library databases that allow you to carry out a cited reference search:
- 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
- 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.
The library run workshops on Cited reference searching. See our Workshops page for further details and how to book on.
