You can find out how many times you were cited using Science Citation Index, which is available via Harvard’s eCommons. To search it, you'll need Harvard privileges. If you don't have Harvard access, or if you'd rather not do it yourself, you can Ask Us! and we'll complete the search for you. 

From the Countway home page, click Web of Science.

From the drop-down menu, select Cited Reference Search.

Click Select from Index below the Cited Author drop-down menu. You should account for all variants of an author’s name, including first names, middle initial(s), hyphenated last names, etc. After all variants have been found, click OK (at bottom of screen) to transfer the names to the Cited Author field on the search page. If desired, choose Timespan to cover the dates of publication. Click Search

Note there may be cited reference variants, since sometimes different pages of the same article are cited, or papers are cited incorrectly. Choose desired references and click Finish Search.

If you want to see the number of times a specific article has been cited, proceed as above but also choose to search the Cited Work field. To account for all forms of a journal name, select all variants from the Journal Abbreviation List, in addition to the full journal name.

If you don't have Harvard credentials, or if you need help with this, please Ask Us! We will need your CV or bibliography to do this for you.
