Citation Indexing and Impact Factors

Scopus is a good database to check for citations.  You can search by author and affiliation "Lawrence Technological University".  Remember, SCOPUS only picks up articles in scholarly journals, and many proceedings, but usually not books or chapters of books. 

To determine the impact factor of articles an author has published, check the boxes for the citations you are interested in, then click on "View Citation Overview" in the menu bar

Use the ANALYTICS bar to explore the impact factors of the journal you are considering.  Find titles, drag and drop them into the box, then compare: the chart will superimpose the data.
