    Dear teachers,
    could i ask you again?

    That variant is correct?
    This article had been citing six time since 2007 OR This article had cited six times since 2007.

    This article had been citing six time since 2007 OR This article had cited six times since 2007.


    May I ask you again:
    In 2007, I published an article, and I want to say that my article has been cited six times.
    Which of these is correct:

    (and the correct one is):
    This article has been cited six time since 2007.


    Do you know the name of each of the tense forms of the verb you have used in your (red) original?

    No need to be
    Just imagine the mistakes we would be making if our roles were reversed, and we were learning Russian!

    My question was well-meant: can you name the tenses...because my next query was how confident are you that you understand the differences.

    Do you have a book that teaches you about the tenses?

    Re: tenses again

    Perhaps you should read more about the difference between Present Perfect tense, and Past Perfect, and then about their Continuous forms.
    Any problems, and you can start a thread!
