Has my book been cited?

It is impossible to do a thorough search for citations of your work in books because there are no purpose-built tools for this. However, you may be able to obtain some book citation data from:

Scopus book index  (2005-, 2003- for A&H collection)

To look for citations for a book, go to Search, type in author's name and book title.

  • You will find whether the book has been indexed by Scupus or not.
  • Sometimes you may also find citations for a book which has not been indexed by Scopus. These citations are from journals indexed by Scopus.

  1. On the Search page, click Limit, select Book or Book Chapter from the Document type box, before your search
