Finding out whether a work has been cited after its publication will help you assess the importance of that work and how it has shaped subsequent research and scholarship. This is called forward citation searching.
For example, this image shows the forward citations for Sherman, Haidt, and Coan's (2009) article "Viewing cute images increases behavioral carefulness."
Increasingly databases include information about who cited a particular reference. Look for "Cited by" or "Times Cited" features.
To use Google Scholar as a resource for citation searching, search for the title of the book or article. Choose the "Cited by" link. The resulting list will include articles and websites that cite the original work as well as books scanned through the Google Books project.
On the resulting list, use the Fulltext@Williams link (sometimes hidden under the double right arrows) to check whether we have the item in our collection. Note: there may be more than one entry for your reference.
