You can use Google Scholar via our webpage  to find books and articles that cite a specific article.



Note: If you access Google Scholar directly from the internet you will have to follow the steps to manually connect Google Scholar to the Walden Library. This connection is erased when you clear your cache and cookies, and will need to be redone.



Here is how you can use Google Scholar to find citing articles:

1.  Go to Google Scholar directly, or use Google Scholar via our webpage (preconfigured to search our Library).

2.  In the Search box enter the title of the article in quotation marks.

For example:

"From Teaching to Learning"

Note: Putting the article title in quotation marks ensures that the title is searched as a phrase and not as individual words.


3.  Click on the blue Search button.

4.  Find your article in the list of results.

5.  At the bottom of the article record you'll see a Cited by link. Click on this link.


6.  This will take you to a list of articles that cited "From teaching to learning."

7.  Items that are available in the Walden Library will have a Find at Walden link in the right column. Click on this link to access the article.


What if there is no Cited by link?

If you are looking at a recently published article, there may not have been time for another article to cite it and be published. Also, it is possible that Google wasn't able to find other articles that cited that article.
