Citation Tracking

Citation Tracking

  • Citation tracking refers to the practice of using the bibliography or reference list of a key article to find other suitable articles, and then to search for more recent articles that cite the key article in their bibliographies or reference lists. There are several databases that allow you to do this; Google Scholar is particularly useful for citation tracking.

Image of a scholarly article with a web of lines both forward and backwards pointing to articles it cites, and articles it is cited within.

  • Article Example: "Atrocity, Authenticity and American Exceptional: (Ir)rationalising the Massacre at My Lai"
