    Can anyone reccomend a website for finding papers that have cited a particular paper? Google scholar can't even find the original, and Web of Science seems to only go back as far as 1970, and my paper was published in 1969.

    There's always the good, old fashioned, bound Science Citation Index if you can't find an online resource that works for what you need to find.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "google scholar can't even find the original". Google scholar works very well in finding the citations to my papers, even when they were made out of ArXiv papers. You may not be able to get those papers IF they require subscription, but you certainly get the full citation of those papers.

    I took it to mean that the article that's the focus of his interest is too old to be indexed online.

    I have access to actual articles dating back from 1969 to mid 1970's, They are all physics, Including Canadian, American and soviet journal of physics..
    so if it's physics and from one of these 3 journals, I'll see if I can take a look.

    Geology/sedimentology. The original paper was in the proceedings of the yorkshire geological society, but any citations could be in Geological magazine, Sedimentology, proceedings of various geological societies, speleological journals etc.

    I'll have a look for one of these. Thanks.

    Searching the paper title brings up three results, but none of them directly relating to the paper I want. Searching the journal title & year brings up a few citations by other papers, but no results from the journal itself so it looks like it hasn't actually been indexed on google scolar.

    Try -

    Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society

    Possibly in one of the indexes mentioned in the last paragraph.

    If that doesn't work -

    http://earth.leeds.ac.uk/ygs/ or

    http://www.leeds.ac.uk/library/subjects/ygs/
    The YGS Library's holdings are included in the Library's Web Catalogue.

    Good luck!
