Main Question or Discussion Point

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 -

http://www.geolsoc.org.uk/template.cfm?name=journals_pygs_home_page [Broken]

The Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society has been published without a break since 1871. It is one of the leading journals of British geology. Each year two parts are issued containing original research papers on all aspects of geology. Traditionally the Proceedings has given particular attention to the geology of northern England and its neighbouring areas. The submission of papers on related topics but of a more general interest is encouraged. All papers are subjected to the full scrutiny of two independent referees.

The current chief editors Stewart Molyneux (BGS, UK) and Doug Holliday (BGS, UK) are supported by a board of specialist editors.

The Proceedings has a long-standing scientific reputation and was chosen in volume 50 to publish some of the results of the investigations by UK Nirex into the geology of west Cumbria related to the possible development of an underground repository for the storage of radioactive waste.

The information in the Proceedings is abstracted/indexed in GeoArchive, Georef, Geobase, Geological Abstracts, Mineralogical Abstracts, Research Alert and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE).
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!
