Tracing Citations

You can use citation indexes to count how many times a source has been cited, which is one measure of scholarly influence. You can also use citation indexes to see which books/articles have cited the source in question.

By tracing a source forward and backward through time, you are tracing a thread of the scholarly conversation on this topic.
