  2. 2. Backward Reference Searching  Backward reference searching is also known as chain searching, pearl growing, or citation mining.  It is done for the following reasons:  Learn about the origins or development of a topic.  Identify experts, institutions, or organizations that specialize on the topic.  Backward reference searching can also be done on a second-generation level (examine the references cited by the first level of references) and on a third- generation level (look at the references cited by the articles located on a second- generation level).  Backwards Author Searching: the works of an author can also be examined this way.
