Locating Who Cited Your Work in Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a free resource that searches for scholarly literature by automatically analyzing and extracting citations from Google-indexed online sources. 
1. Go to Google Scholar.
For this example we will search for works that cite  the article Gender Differences in High-School Students' Views about Science by PH Miller,  JS Blessing, and S. Schwartz  
2. Put  information in the search box to bring up a citation for the article. Usually the last name of the first author and the title is enough.
