Google Scholar provides information about how often an article is cited by other articles in the Scholar universe. Type in a query like feasibility and viability of the digital library in the private law firm and you will see that the article was cited by 14 others. (Yes, I know, shameless self promotion!)
Now you can see the same information on Google Scholar’s case law search. An advanced search on Arkansas cases using the word accretion resulted in a half dozen cases. Clicking on the first one shows the case, but a new tab is there, called How Cited. Click it to see the other cases in the Google database that refer to the case.
This is a popular feature. Westlaw Canada just announced that it had citation frequency for its cases, and CanLII has offered a similar function on its cases for some time. You can run a search on Canadian case law and then sort by most cited.
My favorite of the citation frequency tools remains Fastcase’s Interactive Timeline, which gives you a visual of where your case sits within the entire universe of Fastcase’s database.
