Using Citations in Articles to Find More Articles
PsycINFO is a great database for easily learning:
1) how many times an article has been cited in other articles
2) linking you to those articles
Why is this important? If an article has been cited numerous times it is an indicator that it is either original or authoritative, or both.
How does it help you? You can not only find more articles, but you can find GOOD articles and get a sense of who the experts are.
If this sounds strange to you, it is familiar to you in another context: one of the most important ranking factors in the results of a Google Search is how many sites are linked to a site, and how many people have visited it!
If you have an article and want to see how many times it is cited in the Web of Science,)you can go to the Web of Science, and select at the top for a citation search, then enter the author name and article title.
