The following papers of mine may be of interest:-

     Stochastic modelling of the first-citation distribution.
Scientometrics, 52 (2001), 3-12.

   On the nth-citation distribution and obsolescence. Scientometrics, 53
(2002), 309-323.

They include references to other approaches by such as Egghe, Glanzel and
Rousseau that you should see. Glanzel's data are of particular interest.

Predictive aspects of the model are developed in:-

     Will this paper ever be cited? Journal of the American Society for
Information Science and Technology, 53 (2002), 232-235.

     Predicting future citation behaviour. Journal of the American Society
for Information Science and Technology, 54 (2003), 372-378.

I hope this is of help. If you would like preprint versions of any of these,
please let me know.

Best wishes

  Subject: [SIGMETRICS] time distribution citations
  Importance: High

  Dear colleagues:

  I am currently working on time distribution of citations after the
publication of  papers in scientific journals, it is,  1) the lag between
publication and first citations and
  2) the average frecuency of citations (in %) during the t+1, t+2...t+n
years after the publication of papers.

  Please, may you give me your opinion about this issue?.

  Thank you very much in advance.

  Best regards
