Who Cited Whom: Tracking the Scholarly Conversation Online
How do researchers put their publications and other works in scholarly context – how do they make clear whose work they’re building on and whose work is related to theirs? Citations! By referencing other works, scholars situate themselves in the scholarly conversation. Citations also allow readers to track scholarly conversations, to follow them backward and forward in time.
Come learn how citations are used (and sometimes abused!) in scholarly communication, as well as what they do and don’t say about the cited works. We’ll also look at some research tools that include citation information, and how to use that information in your own research process.
