|4. Citation Rummaging
The University of Toronto subscribes
to many collections of full text journals. It is possible
to search for citations to articles within the text
of articles, including their references. "Citation
rummaging" is a phrase coined by Peter Jacso
to describe this method.
This technique allows you to search sources which
are not indexed by or which predate Web of
Science or Scopus. Consider this if it is important
to find citations in other academic sources.
In the following example we search
in the full text of the Factiva database using a portion
of the title as search terms:
|Kabat-Zinn, J., Massion, A. O., Kristeller,
J., Peterson, L. G., Fletcher, K. E., Pbert,
L. et al. (1992). Effectiveness
of a meditation-based stress reduction program
in the treatment of anxiety disorders.American
Journal of Psychiatry, 149, 936-943.
2: The results
The search in Factiva retrieves of unique results:
- The first result, The Harvard Mental Health
Letter is not indexed in Web of Science and
Scopus is usually two or three months behind Factiva.
- The third item cites the article in a prepared
testimony by Harold G. Koenig, MD given before the
Senate Appropriations Committee, something that
is not indexed in either Web of Science or Scopus.
There are now many resources which will retrieve similar
material and the attached
table in PDF summarizes the options where you can
"rummage" for citations. Remember, that as
more journal content becomes available online this list
will grow and change.
