Finding scholarly books and journal articles

Using one good scholarly source to find others

From a given academic book or article, you can find other sources that may be relevant:

  • Trace back - who does this author cite? (which books, articles, book chapters, authors etc.?)
    • Use the bibliography and/or notes - ask a librarian for help finding specific sources you can't seem to track down

  • Trace forward - who cites this work? (which books, articles, and authors cite the work that you're reading?)
