To begin citation tracking in ResearchRabbit you first need seed papers to begin developing your search.

Once you have selected the collection you would like to citation track, there will be the option to +Add Papers.

There are several ways in which to search for papers:

You can search using a specific article's DOI and selecting 'Add Directly'.

Using this option to search means the paper will be added directly, without opening the search box and showing similar options.

You can choose to search using the article title.

Once you select 'Search' you will be shown the most relevant results and can find the correct paper, as well as related results, to add to the collection.

Another option for adding seed papers is to search using keywords.

This function means you will be provided with relevant results that ResearchRabbit searches academic literature to find.

Using this 'add paper' option is a good way to get started with preliminary searches when you don't have many pre-selected seed papers.

The final option to discover and add seed papers is through importing an existing citation tracking file.

ResearchRabbit allows users to upload either a BibTex or RIS file of previous citation tracking searches.

Once you have added all of your current seed papers, select the X to close the pop up window and begin citation tracking the seed papers.

The chosen seed papers will appear in a column, which can be scrolled and filtered, with options and tools for citation tracking in a pop up beside it.
