In this guide we give you the tools to help you manage your research, your research identity and track your citations. Please remember that the numbers are not absolute and you need to take the time to go beyond the surface. It is important to use both quantitative/qualitative measures.
This is an attempt to give you some of tools available, but if you find one that you like, please let us know!

Scopus data comes from CiteScore, SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper), SJR (SCImago Journal Rank), citation- and document- counts and percentage cited. The integration of these metrics into Scopus provides insights into the citation impact journal titles.
The citation information in Google Scholar is extracted from scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and does not include patents, books, dissertations and Court opinions.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer reviewed research literature in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and the arts & humanities. It is updated daily and includes over 21,000 titles from over 5,000 international publishers. It also contains over 5 million conference papers and "Articles-in-Press" from almost 4000 journals and publishers. Full coverage begins in 1996.
The SNIP indicator measures the average citation impact of the publications of a journal. More information is available from the source at http://www.journalindicators.com/

EBSCO Host databases have several options that you can utilize when tracking citations. Your choices will vary depending on the database you are searching. Some of the options include:
1. Find Similar Results
2. Cited References
3. Citation Matcher
Cited References: This option is available from both the result list and the full records.(NOTE: only available for some articles, results will vary!).
Times Cited in this database--This option is available from both the results list and full record (Note: only available for some articles, results will vary!).
Proquest Databases recently added the ability to search for Cited References. This feature covers scholarly journals from 2007 (Note: a few go back to 2003). Dissertations are covered beginning in 2008. Choose "Author-AU" from the drop down menu. Once the selection is made, the "Look up Authors" link appears. If you are just looking for citations for articles , you can limit the search to scholarly journals (Note: Peer Reviewed is an option).
Hint: In searching the author's name it is best to leave the default at "Contains"
If the article has been cited by other documents in the Proquest databases, Cited by (#) will appear below the citation.
