Hi, when i click on "Citation Metrics" i get a graphic with citation distribution over the last 20 years, but i can't get a precise number for each year. I found out that i can get that information from ResearchID labs, by clicking on "citing articles network" and presenting it by year. The problem is that the later graphic shows the TOP 20, instead of LAST 20 years like the first one. Is it possible to obtain the precise number of citations for the last n years ?
Thank you in advance.

The Citing Articles Network graph displays the number of citing publications and not the number of citations for the researcher’s publication list. While this may be close to the number of citations it is not exact. A single paper could cite multiple articles in a publication list.
If you have access to Web of Science the best way to view the accurate number of citations over the years is to create a citation report from search results. Currently ResearcherID will not provide this information.
I am sorry if the current ResearcherID display has caused any inconvenience.
