The quickest way to can find more recent articles on your topic is to search in Google Scholar. And the best part is that you start with the best of the articles you have already found!

The goal is to locate articles published in the past five years that reference the ones you already have. To start, pick the best two or three articles you have that were published from 6 to 10 years ago. You will use these to search for newer articles.

  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. Type in the title of one of your articles. It helps to put the title in quotation marks.
  3. Hit Search
  4. Look for the "Cited by" link under the article information:
  5. Click on this link to see other articles that have cited this one.
  6. Search the library catalog for any that look promising.
