Q. How do I verify an incomplete citation for a journal article?
PubMed's Citation Sensor offers an easy way to locate a citation even when you lack complete bibliographic information (e.g. author, title, year). To locate your specific citation, enter any or all of the following bibliographic elements: journal title, date, volume, issue, page, author into PubMed's search box. PubMed will look for matching citations.
PubMed also offers a Single Citation Matcher tool which uses a Web form to enter bibliographic information and search for matching citation(s).
