Business Citation Analysis and Scholarly Impact

Citation analysis studies the impact and assumed quality of an article, journal or author based on the number of times articles or authors have been cited by others, and the impact and ranking of the associated journals in that field.


If your article appears in an EBSCO database you can do a search to see where your article is cited in any other article in an EBSCO database. This method should work in any database that uses the EBSCO interface, including  Econlit with Full Text or Business Source Complete.

Start by clicking Cited References on the blue toolbar.

  1. Enter your name (last name first - try putting quotation marks around your last name and first initial if you get too many results) and any other criteria, then click Search.
  2. On the results screen, put a check mark next to articles you want to look for citations to, then click Find Citing Articles.
  3. Unfortunately, you can't set up an alert for this kind of search, so you'll need to run it every time you want to check for new citations to your work.

Searching for your name can be tricky; try your last name and first initial inside quotation marks first, then adjust your search strategy as needed. You might want to search for your own articles first to see how your name is usually spelled in the database.
