Literature Searching: Citation Indexes

Citation indexes help you find most of the articles published on a topic from a broad range of fields, regardless of publisher.

Scopus and Web of Science track how often papers are cited, and it is through this citation analysis that you can get a sense of what people have written and what, based on the citations, are considered foundational papers in the field. You should do your search in both to make sure you're catching everything; while there is a fair amount of overlap, they draw from different collections of publications.
