a bibliographic index which allows the user to trace research forward in time by searching for articles that have cited a known relevant article. These indexes are very commonly used by faculty in their tenure process to indicate the impact of their publications on others' research. Citation indexes can also be used for standard author/subject searching. EXAMPLE: Science Citation Index.
periodical index that indicates how many times the work of one author has been referred to, or cited, by another author, and where. How many times a document is cited by other writers is an indication of its importance. The three most-used citation indexes are: Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and Science Citation Index.
A list of articles that, subsequent to the appearance of the original article, refer to, or cite, that article. This method is particularly applicable to scientific literature and allows easy tracing of similar research.
a bibliographic tool in print or electronic format that lists all referenced or cited source items published in a given time span
a compilation of all the cited references from journal articles published during a particular year linked to their source article
a compilation of all the cited references from journal articles published during a particular year or group of years
a journal database which keeps track of all the references cited in the bibliographies of all the journal citations in the database
a reference tool that presents bibliographic data on published journal articles
a structured list of all the citations in a given collection of documents
a tool that analyses the footnotes and endnotes of each article to show which articles are being cited and by whom
An index that consists of a list of works that have been cited in later works and a list of the works from which the citations have been collected. See also
An index listing all publications appearing in a set of source publications that cite a given publication in their bibliographies.
an index that lists documents citing a given document.
an index listing articles that refer to (cite) an earlier work. It can provide an alternative way to search for a subject by taking a useful or well known paper and looking at later work which refers back to it. A Web of Science cited reference search will do this.
a bibliographic index which allows the user to trace research from an article by searching for subsequent articles that have cited that original article.
Research articles have lists of cited references (bibliographies, reference lists) which are the authors' acknowledgments of debt to previously published research. This prior research may have been reported in journal articles, books, patents, or other types of material. A citation index tracks this record of cited references, which provides access to the body of research in the discipline.
An index consisting essentially of a list of works which have been cited in other, later works, and a list of the works from which the citations have been collected. Used to identify subsequently published works that are related by subject to the cited work.
A citation index is an index of citations between publications, allowing the user to easily establish which later documents cite which earlier documents.
