Citation searching (also known as cited reference searching) allows you to search through literature, starting from your known reference, to locate new articles which cite your known reference in their bibliographies (the list of references usually found at the end of chapters or journal articles).
Citation searching also allows you to see how many times a particular author or article has been cited by others.

Go to ISI Citation Indexes (Web of Science) and choose Cited Reference Search

Scopus allows you to perform a cited reference search straight from the main search box. Enter your keywords of interest and set the drop-down menu to References.

Use Business Source Complete -- scroll over More in the top green toolbar, then click on Cited References. You can search by author or by title, source, and keyword to get cited references.
