Topics on the Faculty Support guide include:

Citation Research

Resources for determining how often and by whom your publications have been cited and where your publications rank according to various journal metrics and other methods of analysis.

Remember, difference databases often display different citation counts and citing works, so you should NOT rely on a single source or metric when determining your research impact.

What is citation research and which databases do I need to research citations?

These pages are good overviews of the topics but the subscription database links in these pages are institution-specific and will not work for Wright State users.  To access these databases for citation research at Wright State, use Wright State's databases list to access particular databases discussed.

Has my work been cited?

Web of Science and Google Scholar are good places to begin your search.

Citation tracking options and citation counts availability vary by database.  Your subject librarian can help you determine which databases are most appropriate for your needs.
