ART Citation Linker

Have a citation? Go directly to the article!  Use Citation Linker.

Get immediate access to journal articles, books and other publications (or request them when they are not available) by entering a title and other citation information.

When a publication is available online: The UC-eLinks window will provide a link to the publisher's web site that should contain the full text of the publication if UC (systemwide or your home campus) subscribes to the electronic version of the publication.

When a publication is not available online: The UC-eLinks window will offer other options such as the ability to check campus library holdings in the Melvyl Catalog (and where you can sometimes find that items ARE available online), or to Request the item via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) if UC (systemwide or your home campus) does not subscribe to the electronic version of the publication.

Citation Help

Citation Management.
Three citation management tools widely used at UC Berkeley are RefWorks, Endnote, and Zotero.  Each organizes citations and produces quick and easy bibliographies in many citation styles, including APA 6th.  Learn about other citation and writing tools on the EDP Library's Citation Management webpage.

RefWorks is free for UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff. From many of UC’s databases, importing citations is seamless and easy.  Create correctly cited bibliographies, footnotes, and in-text citations.  New users can sign up at RefWorks.  Find tutorials and tips for using RefWorks on the EDP Library webpage.

Zotero is free software for collecting, organizing, using and formatting citations.  Sign up and view this tool at zotero.org.

EndNote is software that must be purchased.  It’s available from UC Berkeley’s Software Central.  Find tutorals and tips for using EndNote via the Library webpage.

APA Style
Use the APA Publication Manual 6th edition in the EDP Library.  See the APA Style tab above for more information.

Widely cited journals and articles.
ISI Web of Knowledge - Social science citation index provides a "Cited Reference Search" feature which can be searched by cited author, work or year.  The ISI database provides "cited by" information on its search results page.  ISI's Journal Citation Reports will find a current list of most highly cited journals.   It should be noted, however, that ISI is evaluating a highly selective group of journal titles.  For example, only 130 education titles, 36 special education titles, and 49 educational psychology titles, a relatively small selection given the large number of journals published in education.  See the journal list at ISI WOS for specific titles. 

Google Scholar also provides on their initial search results screen a “cited by” link with the total number of citations.   Similarly, the CSA Illumina interface provides on their search results page, "cited by" links for more recent psychology articles.
