Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI)

SSCI indexes 3,200 journals across 50 social science disciplines.  Search the SSCI database to find out the number of times an author's specific works have been cited by other researchers. Lesley University provides access to data from 1989 to the present. Once in the database, choose the 'Cited Reference Search' link at the top of the search screen.
