How Many Times is an Article Cited?: Emerald FullText

Steps for Finding 'Times Cited' in Emerald FullText

To find out how many times an article has been cited when using Emerald FullText, follow these steps:

Step 1) 

Enter the information about the article [or your topic - in this example I am searching for articles on "Student Participation"] into the Advanced Search search bar. Be sure to put the title or search term between quotation marks so that the words will be searched for as a phrase! 

Next, be sure to choose Content Item Title in the second search criteria [it will say 'Anywhere' if left empty]. If you know the Author's last name for your article, input that in the second search bar under the 'AND' search criteria. Choose Author in the last search criteria after you have entered the Authors name. Be sure to click the box labeled 'Only content I have access to' if you want immediate, Full Text results as opposed to submitting an InterLibrary Loan Request.

Step 2) 

Once you receive your search results and choose your article, download the PDF for the article. 

Step 3) 

Citation information for the articles are generated at the very end of the PDF, as seen in the screenshot for Step 3, and the article I found:  Judy Orme, Matthew Jones, Debra Salmon, Emma Weitkamp, Richard Kimberlee, (2013) "A process evaluation of student participation in a whole school food programme"Health Education, Vol. 113 Issue: 3, pp.168-182 .

The References link for the article indicates how many articles a particular article cites [i.e., how many entries are on their own article's reference list].
