A citation index is a specialised research database which tracks where articles are cited (referenced) by other articles, showing  relationships between publications and between authors. Citation indexes are commonly used in postgraduate and academic research.

The Library subscribes to two major citation indexes: Web of Science and Scopus. These databases have different coverage.

Google Scholar and some other databases also include citation tracking.
