Google Scholar


Google Scholar is a great tool to "listen in" to the scholarly conversation. You can implement citation chaining to see who a particular author is in conversation with (or who they are citing in their work) and also see who has since joined the conversation (or who has cited the author's work), working backwards and forwards in time.
