Citation tracking/chaining

Web of Science is one way to determine the scholarly conversation around a topic. It, along with Google Scholar, Scopus and other tools index and show references cited by an author and which subsequent citations cite the initial work. Don't let the name fool you: WOS does cover the arts and humanities too.
