Your citation map is a geographic representation of your citations across the globe.  It demonstrates the international reach of your publications and highlights areas where your impact is more pronounced.


Your map can be accessed from your private dashboard by clicking on the "Citation map" menu item under "Me".  Red pins can be clicked to see the details of citing papers from a given location.  Blue circles can be clicked to zoom in and de-cluster a point to see red pins and details of citing papers.  Citing paper details for a given city are grouped by institution.


Citing paper locations are based on the institutions its authors were affiliated with at the time of its publication.  A given citing paper may be represented several times on a map if researchers from multiple institutions contributed to it.  This means that the number of points indicated on the map may be higher than your total citation count.


Citation maps may be included in promotion, funding, or green-card applications by screenshotting the page.
