Web of Science: Finding Citing References for an Article

Finding citing references to a specific article:

  1. Go to Web of Science (WOS).
  2. Click on Cited Reference Search.WOS has 3 citation indexes: Social Science, Science, and Arts & Humanities. By default, all three indexes are turned on. You have the option to turn off any of the three indexes. Since each index covers a pool of journals for that particular area, you may find that excluding a particular pool is helpful. Leaving all the indexes activated will cover a broader range of journals. You can also change the range of years you want to search.

3. If you want to search for cited references to a particular article, enter the author, cited work and/or year information. Note that cited work refers to the name of the journal in which the article you are interested in appeared. It is best to put minimum information to ensure that you do not miss any citations.

4. From the search results, select the relevant citations including any “cited reference variants". Add the numbers in the "Citing Articles" column from both the correct citation and the variant-citations together to get the total citation count for the publication.

5. To view the citing articles for selected items, click on the "Finish Search" button.

Caveats:

  • The citation count will only include the number of times the publication was cited by articles from the journals that are covered by Web of Science.
  • The number of references in the results list (step 4) may not match the citation count obtained in step 5.  Citation counts in step 4 may include citing references from databases and timespans not covered by our subscription and therefore, those references would not be available for viewing in step5.
