EBSCOhost databases

Select from over 50 databases covering many subjects. Searching across multiple databases is easy and still allows access to database-specific limiting options. Many databases allow limiting to peer-reviewed sources. Most contain some full-text articles (in HTML and PDF). All EBSCOhost databases support mobile devices (with javascript enabled).  

Full record


EBSCOhost databases (particularly the Complete databases that are large and contain lots of full-text articles) tracks citations to articles in a given database from articles in that same database. (This is a more limited list than other cited reference tools.)

Start by finding your article. If there are citing publications in the EBSCOhost database, you will see a Times Cited in this Database link. Note that the Cited Reference link shows the bibliography of the article itself.

While there is overlap between the EBSCOhost databases, you may need to repeat this process in any EBSCO databases that could contain your article.

Cited reference searching starts with a specific article, book, or other publication. Usually your first step is to find that publication in the database you are using. That may mean searching the title, but sometimes you'll use the author's name. Since citations for this publication can vary, expect the need to select from among variations or to perform multiple searches and combining the results.
