Using the Libraries' Web of Science database is one way to find the number of citations for an article.

To access Web of Science, click on the Find Databases tab over the search box in the middle of the Libraries' homepage; next, type in Web of Science and click on Search. Then, enter the title, author, and journal for the article you have in mind (as follows):



Click Search, and you will find a list of articles that match. From there you can see how many times it has been cited, and click the number (see arrow below) to see a list of the articles that cite the original article.

You can also use Google Scholar to find citation information. From the Google Scholar homepage, type in the name of your article and click search. You may also use the Advanced Scholar Search by clicking the arrow indicated in the screenshot below to add additional information such as author name and publication.



On the results page you will see the number of times your article has been cited. Clicking on the "cited by" link (arrow below) will produce the list of articles which have cited that specific article.
