Web of Science
The capability to see which papers cite earlier papers, using the earlier papers
as the starting point. Cited Reference Searching lets you use a given work as if
it were a subject term to identify more recent articles on the same topic. For example,

This type of searching often locates relevant articles that cannot be retrieved through
traditional subject-author searching.
