This guide is intended to assist students in ENGL420 with research for their capstone papers.

Use Google Scholar's Cited By to find newer sources

Use the "Cited by" link in Google Scholar to see who has cited an article since it was published.

Using "Cited by" with Google Scholar

The video below walks through how you can use the "Cited by" link in Google Scholar.

"Cited by" allows you to do what's called "citation tracking." With citation tracking, you can look for articles and other sources that have cited this article.

This can be extremely useful when you are conducting a literature search. Just like looking at the references list for articles, looking to see who is citing an article can show you a new set of sources related to your topic. Note this video does not have narration.

If you have further questions about how to use the "Cited by" link for searching you can contact the Lavery Librarians at LibraryReference@sjfc.edu.
