To find articles that have cited you,
Click Cited Reference Search from the set of white tabs near the top

If you're looking for citations of articles you've published in a specific journal, fill in the abbreviated title of the journal and optionally the year of publication in the appropriate search boxes. Click journal abbreviation list if you don't know the abbreviation of a journal's title.
At the bottom of the screen, you can select a timespan to limit your search. You can also limit to one or more of indexes; by default, all indexes will be searched.
On the next page, you'll see a list of articles published by you or anyone who shares your last name and first initial. Depending on how common your name is and how prolific you and the people who share it have been, you may see only a few results or several pages of them. If you're overwhelmed by results, you might want to go back and limit your original search.
For detailed information about an article, click View Record. This can be helpful if you're not certain that a result is yours.
Put checkmarks next to the articles you want to find references to. The Citing Articles field lets you know how many citing references will be returned for each one.

Web of Science Researcher Metrics
The citation report generated within the Web of Science provides detailed information on selected items including total citations, average citations, citations by year, and the h-index. The report is based on records selected from the Web of Science database, does not include cited references, and may not be comprehensive. If a significant number of your publications are not listed the resulting metrics may be significantly impacted.
Identify all of your publications indexed in the Web of Science. Use the author finder located on the Web of Science search screen to be prompted through the narrowing process. For each limiter select as many choices that are applicable. For example, select all institutions with which you have a publication affiliation.
After completing the narrowing process, you'll be directed to a results page. Review and further refine your results with the left hand toolbar if necessary. Only your publications should remain listed to create an accurate report. Do not mark records.
