WU Get it! menus sometimes include bX recommender citations. This is a little like Amazon's "other users also bought these" option. While not a search service, bX is designed to provide automated browsing of scholarly articles based on keywords and usage data. When you click on a Get it! button while searching in many WU databases or even in Google Scholar (if you are on campus or have Scholar preferences set to include "Washington University in St Louis - Get it! @ WU"), you may be presented with a menu like this:
Not all Get it! menus will display the bX menu, but you should see them more and more as the service develops. These recommendations from bX can be downloaded to your choice of bibliographic manager services such as RefWorks. More info.
