There are a couple of ways to find additional articles:

2.  Citation Analysis (Citation Chasing)

Citation Chasing

Citation Chasing involves finding articles that have cited an article of interest.  There are a two ways to do this on the library website:

1.  Google Scholar

2. Web of Science

*It's a good idea to search multiple sources that offer citation analysis as no single source will know the exact amount of articles that have cited another article.

Citation Chasing using Google Scholar

1. Access Google Scholar on the Databases page.

2.  Search for the title of the original article (or do a keyword search).

3.  On the results page, click the "Cited by" link underneath the description of the article(s).

4. It's possible that one or some of the articles on the "Cited by" results list may be useful to your research.
