Cited reference searching allows you to locate books and articles that cite a previously published resource. This process allows you to track the research that has been done since the original item was published.
Why use cited reference searching?
To determine influential research
To find out how a particular research topic is being used to support other research
To find out how many times and where a publication is being cited
To find out who is citing a particular paper
To locate current research based on earlier research
To track the history of a research idea
To track the research history of a researcher
To determine how well your own published research is cited for promotion/tenure considerations
