Citation Search Service

About Us

The Library offers citation search service to faculty members and international students who are interested in finding out their research impact based on their own publications. Librarians will use Web of Science Core Collection and other databases to trace cited references and compile relevant reports, such as:

A full list of author’s publications in Web of Science Core Collection and other databases

A count of the number of times each author's work is cited (if any) in Web of Science and other databases

A signed certificate that approves the citation search results.


BNU faculty members or students that require this service should submit a request form. Upon receipt of your request, our librarian will contact you to confirm the details of your request. In normal circumstances, it will take 1-2 business days to complete a report. Please provide a comprehensive and up-to-date list of author publications so as to the queries.

Please fill out our request form below.
