There are several methods for doing cited reference searching, the option(s) you choose
will depend on your discipline and where the journals you published in are indexed. *There are limitations inherent to each method, so typically authors need to combined methods
to get the best results.
The Who has cited my work? guide provides instructions for searching cited references in
discipline specific databases.
The Citation Searching and Bibliometrics guide (prepared by Bern Dibner Library) provides detailed information about cited reference searching and journal impact factor, along with defintions and a citation analysis tool comparison chart.
My Citations profile available through GoogleScholar - allows you to set up a profile and track your citations. The citation report shows citation count, h-index and links to articles that cited your work. **This is not an exhaustive list, only includes those journals indexed by GoogleScholar. (See Associate Professor Lombardo's Google profile page for an example.)
Available for free is the tool Publish of Perish. It's a downloadable software program that retrieves and analyzes academic citations using Google Scholar raw data, it then analyzes these and present results that can be outputted in a variety of formats.
The Who's Citing Me? guide (developed by Bowling Green University Libraries) provides step-by-step instructions on how to use some citation searching tools.

The OU community has access to the Journal Citation Reports database (Science and Social Science edition from 2009 to present) which can show you the most frequently cited and
highest impact journals in a field. (Thomas Reuters has very good training videos on JCR and Impact Factor.)

ResearcherID is a product ISI Web of Science. This free service provides the global research community with an index to author information. Each author listed is assigned a unique number, which serves as a fast, easy identifier for viewing an author’s citation metrics.
A ResearcherID badge can be placed in almost any online environment to showcase publications and link people directly to your profile and full publication list. (See Associate Professor Kraemer's webpage for an example.)
Many of the top research databases provide a means for subscribing to RSS feeds for searches or setting up email Alerts when new items have been added to the database relevant to a saved search. If you would like personalized training, please contact the Faculty Research Support Librarian or your library liaison.
