Citation counts from other databases

It could very well be that your area of research does not receive good coverage in Scopus, Web of Science or Google Scholar, but receives better coverage in one of the databases listed below. In that case, you may want to consult the citation counts provided by the following individual databases. Keep in mind, these databases may not have the citation analysis functionality like that of Scopus or Web of Science. You may end up having to export data (when possible) to another file format in order to carry out an analysis.

For each article you can select “Get Citing” from under “Get Related Citations”.

PubMed (Medline):
In individual article records, there is a section titled “Cited by _ PubMed Central articles”, which takes you to a list of the articles available for free in PubMed Central (separate from PubMed itself) that have cited that article.

It is possible to click on the “Author Citations” tab and search by author name to get a list of that person’s articles in MathSciNet, as well as a citation count from articles from the subset of MathSciNet’s Reference List Journals. The list is organized in such a manner that one could easily determine the h-index for those articles and their citing articles in that database.

IEEE Xplore:
Click on the “Cited By” tab in each article’s record to get a list of the documents citing that article. Clicking on the “Metrics” tab will give comparison citation counts from Scopus and Web of Science as well.

ProQuest databases (including Philosopher’s Index, Sociological Abstracts):
Gives a “Cited By” count on the right hand side for each individual document.

EBSCO databases (Academic Search Complete):
Gives a “Times Cited in this Database” count above the PDF on the search results page, and the item record page, for some documents.
