There are a number of sources which provide citation counts. At Pitt you can access Web of Science and Scopus: indices which count citations in peer-reviewed scholarly journals, and increasingly, in conference proceedings and books. Open source tools like Google Scholar are also a good source of citation counts. Institutional and subject repositories may also have citation information for publications deposited with them. Often publisher websites will provide citation counts to papers in their journals. 

For more information about sources of citation data see our LibGuide on research impact metrics or contact Bibliometrics Services Group at ULS.
