What is the Cited By Tool?

  • The Cited by Tool will locate citations in resources for the scripture passage or word or number that is shown in the reference box.
    • You select which resources groups that you want shown in the Cited By tool (see below).
    • Logos will search through the resources in a group for your citation (you may see a progress indicator while Logos is searching) and hits will be shown when you expand a group. These are linked to each resource, thus allowing you to click on them and open that resource to where your citation was found.
    • Logos will show up to 5 hits in a group, covering several resources. If more hits were found then a more link will be active after the last hit.
      If you click on the more link, then Logos will show more hits.
    • When you see a Search link it could mean that you have to Search for more results, but Search is available without using the more links.
      It will open a Search panel and search for your citation within your resources for that group.

  • Your reference will generally be a Bible reference. But Logos also supports references to other sources e.g. Quram.
    • When you type into the Reference box Logos will show you a drop down list to help you locate the exact reference that you want to use.
