Answer

There are a couple of places where you can find out how many times an article has been cited by other scholars. 

One method is through Scopus, located under "Find a Database" and by selecting "S" From here all you need to do is search for the article in which you are interested.  At the right of the search results, there is the number of times the article has been cited.  You can also analyze whole journals by clicking on the "Analyze Journal" link above the search box and searching for a journal.

Another way to find how many times an article has been cited is by using Google Scholar, located under "Databases by Title," and by selecting "G."  Here, you also simply search for the article in which you are interested.  Under the link, there will be a notation of how many articles cite the article.

A third way to do this search is by using Web of Science, which can be located by clicking on "Find a Database" and by selecting "W".  Search for the article in which you are interested, and the number of citations can be found to the right of the search results.  Also, when you click on the hyperlinked title, the number of citations can be found to the right under Citation Network.

Please keep in mind that none of these methods may be a complete list of all times an article is cited since each searches different databases and sources.
