The second tool in Google Scholar is not traditional citation tracking but performs a similar function.

The 'Related Articles' tool allows you to view similar resources to your original selection.

To begin, you must perform a search and choose the resource you want to investigate.

Underneath the title and description, and next to the 'Cited by #' tool, you can see an option for 'Related Articles'. Select this option and it will open a new search with the chosen resources.

Note: There is little information about how Google Scholar's algorithm chooses and sorts the 'Related Articles'.

The official position states:

Google Scholar sorts “articles the way researchers do, weighing the full text of each article, the author, the publication in which the article appears, and how often the piece has been cited in other scholarly literature”.
