Citation Searching: JSTOR

Finding Citing Articles in JSTOR

Note that, while JSTOR contains articles from many academic disciplines, it is primarily geared toward the humanities and social sciences.

Only those citing articles that are also in the JSTOR database are listed, and JSTOR typically does not contain articles from the most recent 5 years. The citing articles in JSTOR can still be useful in a comprehensive search, but should never be the only source used.


Navigate to JSTOR from the library databases page (if you are off-campus you will be asked to enter your username and password - the same one as for your MTU e-mail).

2) On the main page, click "Advanced Search"


3) Enter your name (or the author you wish to search) in the first search box and select "author" in the drop down menu. Be sure that the boxes next to both "include only content I can access" and "include links to external content" are checked to give you the most results. Clcik "Search."


4) The only way to check citations is to go article-by-article. From the results list, click on an article you want to check. On the record page, there will be a box in the upper right showing the number of citing articles. Click the link that says "N items citing this item" to see the list of citing articles. 


5) You will be taken to a list of other JSTOR items that cite this article:
