Q. I remember there are indexes to indicate publications' impacts. Where do I find those indexes?

There are also ways to see which publications refer to a certain journal. How do I find out?

Answer

The "Web of Science" database is one index for measuring the impact of articles.  For each article in search results, "Web of Science" displays a heading "Times Cited:" followed by a number.  Click on that number to see citations to the original article.

The "Journal Citation Reports" database can be used to find the impact of a specific journal.  In the full entry for each journal, look for the "Cited Journal Data" button to see a list of journals that cite articles published in the journal you are studying.

Some general information about the influence of a journal can also be found in Cabell's Directories.  This source is not particularly useful for the purpose you describe, but it may provide information to supplement "Journal Citation Reports."
