Citation Analysis or citation tracking is a way to see the impact of an article in its field. Also, it's a great way to use a "landmark" or influential article to find more recent, related articles that cite the landmark article. Search in Google Scholar or Web of Science to see if your source has been cited by others!
Times Cited: Navigate forward in time using Times Cited to discover a paper’s impact on current research.
Cited References: Navigate backward in time using cited references to uncover authors’ previous influences. (What you would think of as a traditional bibliography)
Related Records: are ranked according to the number of references they share with the parent record.
Articles that cite the same works have a subject relationship, regardless of whether their titles, abstracts, or keywords contain the same terms. The more cited references two articles share, the closer this subject relationship is. Related Records is an excellent way of finding "more like this" articles.
