To find cited references for an article in IEEE Xplore, begin by performing a basic or advanced search.

Once inside the detailed record, scroll to the bottom to the page and select the cited documents tab.


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.
