Journal article citation metrics are demonstrated by the number of times the work has been cited by others. For Arts, Architecture, and Landscape Architecture these results may be best found by systematically searching your article's title across numerous databases. For disciplines such as Urban Planning, Property and Construction, citation databases, such as Scopus may suffice.
