What is Cited Reference Searching?
Cited reference searching allows you to see who cited a published book or article. Looking at footnotes, you can follow research backwards in time to see what sources your article used. Cited reference searching allows you to take research forwards by seeing who else cited the article you are using. You can look at the other citations those articles used and build a web of citations and sources useful for your research.
