For Key Articles on a Topic/In a Field

  • start at Web of Science
    • do a search for your Topic; sort results by Times Cited - Highest to lowest
    • follow the "Times cited" link to see other papers in WOS that cite the article
    • see Refining categories at left - make sure you refine to only "Articles" for research papers
    • refine by "Authors" to see researchers who are working heavily in an area
    • consult the "Cited References" of the article for the full bibliography
  • for a deeper literature review, search for a dissertation in ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database
  • Also consult the Primo catalogue and do an Advanced search looking for books under specific subject headings; you'll get fewer, more relevant titles
