Watch this video on how to use citation chaining to find articles.
Use OMNI, Business Source Complete, Web of Science and Scopus to find journal articles published on a topic or to find out who has cited a particular author and/or paper.
For example: The following article was written in 2009
Lu, I., Thomas, D., & Zumbo, B. (2005). Embedding IRT in Structural Equation Models: A Comparison With Regression Based on IRT Scores. Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 12(2), 263–277. https://doi.org/10.1207/s15328007sem1202_5
It has been CITED 13 times according to OMNI. One recent article is:
Jin, K., & Chen, H. (2019). MIMIC approach to assessing differential item functioning with control of extreme response style. Behavior Research Methods, 52(1), 23–35. https://doi.org/10.3758/s13428-019-01198-1
Using a citation index will often lead to finding relevant references from one original citation.
