Citation counts measure the impact of a publication, author or topic, by counting the number of times it is cited by other works. No Single citation analysis source covers all publications and their cited references.
Major citation count resources:
Web of Science: most interdisciplinary and comprehensive citation resource.
Google Scholar: citation information from scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and from U.S. patents in Google Patents database. Option: eliminate the patents as a source of citation data or nclude citations from legal journals and opinions.

Enter search terms:
-- Google Scholar does not index all scholarly articles.
-- Author names can be tricky to search and results can vary depending on how the name is entered.
-- Variants in how the item is cited can result in more than one entry for the item under study.
-- The term "citation" in brackets [CITATION] at an entry, indicates that full text is not accessible through Google Scholar.
