Use Google Scholar to see who has cited your article after it was published. This helps you see what has been written after your article was published, citing forward.

I wish to honor and express my gratitude to the Indigenous peoples who cared for the lands where the majority of this guide was developed. I acknowledge that the lands that UR inhabit are the unceded ancestral territory of the Seneca Nation, known as the Onöndowa'ga or “Great Hill People” and “Keepers of the Western Door” of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy whose loss of lives, culture, knowledge, stories, and experiences are a part of Rochester, New York State, and U.S. history. May we all work collectively to combat the continued erasure of indigenous lands, life, and knowledge.
