Need to include data in your T & P dossier on the number of times your publications have been cited by others? There are many resources you can use to locate citations or references to your work using a process called Citation Searching. Most of these resources are available through WSU Libraries subscriptions, but others offer free access. The links on the left will direct you to resources most relevant to your discipline. Choose the ones you want to try, and then follow the instructions to search for citations to your work.

The University Libraries recently canceled Web of Science, a major database of peer-reviewed journals from Clarivate used for many years to track citation data for faculty tenure and promotion files. As an alternative, the Libraries has newly subscribed to Scopus, another major database of peer-reviewed journals from Elsevier. Faculty are encouraged to use Scopus, just as they used Web of Science, for citation counts and other data related to their publications.
