Citation indexes for mathematical physics

In summary, there are a few different ways to determine which articles have cited a particular article in mathematical physics. One way is to use the search engine Google Scholar, which does a reasonable job. Another option is to use CiteSeer, although its development may have been slowed due to a fire. Finally, the arXiv eprints platform allows you to see what papers are cited by a given eprint or what later eprints cite a particular one.

Hi all,
given an article in mathematical physics, is there a way to know in
which articles it has been cited in the literature?
Thanks

Increasingly, the answer is "yes"! Try

Unfortunately, it seems that the University of Southampton suffered a
devasting fire, which has apparently retarded the development of the very
promising Citebase search tool, but see

The "abstract" page of arXiv eprints allows you to quickly see what papers
are cited by a given eprints, and for older eprints you can see what later
eprints cite that one you are interested in evaluating. Since the arXiv
is becoming the universal journal, this should be a good way to check for
citations after another decade or so. Long live the arXiv! (At least if
it can continue to maintain a -relatively- crankfree author field...)

Related to Citation indexes for mathematical physics

1. What is a citation index for mathematical physics?

A citation index for mathematical physics is a database that tracks and indexes the citations of scientific articles in the field of mathematical physics. It provides a way to measure the impact and influence of a particular article or researcher in the scientific community.

2. How are articles included in a citation index for mathematical physics?

Articles are typically included in a citation index for mathematical physics through a process of manual or automated selection. This can involve looking at the relevance of the article to the field, the quality of the research, and the number of citations it has received from other articles.

3. What are the benefits of using a citation index for mathematical physics?

There are several benefits to using a citation index for mathematical physics. It allows researchers to easily track the impact and influence of their work, identify key articles and authors in their field, and discover new and relevant research. It also helps institutions and funding agencies assess the productivity and impact of researchers and make decisions about funding and resources.

4. How can I access a citation index for mathematical physics?

Citation indexes for mathematical physics are typically available through online databases, such as Web of Science or Scopus. These databases may require a subscription or access through a university or research institution.

5. Are citation indexes for mathematical physics limited to certain languages or regions?

No, citation indexes for mathematical physics are not limited to specific languages or regions. They aim to include articles from all relevant sources, regardless of language or location. However, some indexes may have a stronger focus on English-language publications or articles from certain regions due to the availability of data.
