Tracking research

Citation tracking

  • Find article and author citations in the three big citation databases: Google ScholarWeb of Science, and Scopus. Create accounts in these resources to set up automatic citation alerts.
  • Create a profile in Google Scholar (called, My Citations) to keep track of when your own works are cited.
  • Learn about profiles, citations, and other metrics from the impact measurements subject guide.

Tracking publications

  • Subscribe to the table of contents of journals using JournalTOCs.
  • Set up search alerts in the different databases to find out when new articles are published on your topic.

Social networking
