Common Methods for Finding impact

Perform Author Searches
A variety of impact metrics will be available.  Note: one database's ability to tell you how many times something was cited is usually restricted to the times the item was cited within that database.  No one database captures all of scholarly publishing's output or impact.

Find the articles that your author(s) cite in their papers.
Use a DOI (example: 10.3149/jms.1403.337) in the Citation/eJournal IU-Link database.

See the IU Libraries Research Guide for Alternative Metrics for more information.
