What is citation chaining and how can LibrarySearch help?


Citation chaining is a way to see how the conversation on a topic among experts has changed over time. To see how a topic has been discussed in the past, you can consult the references that an author has cited in their paper.

  • To see where the conversation has gone since a book or article has been published, you can see who has cited that book or article since its publication.
  • In LibrarySearch, you can access the sources an article has cited by clicking on the down arrow in the search result. 
  • To see who has cited an article since its publication, click on the up arrow in the search results - this is a great way to find more recent sources on the topic. 
  • Google Scholar is another way to see who has cited an article since its publication using Cited By
