We got a quote from TR for a big pile o'data and the cost was not cheap - at all. I wonder if you could do some of this with either the Scopus or the WoS API? 

You might have to space the requests over a period of time, too.

If the journals are indexed by ISI Web of Science, then you might be able to get the data from them. They probably have annoying terms of reference that don't allow this sort of thing normally, but they do regularly support bibliometric research, so there's probably a way to tell them what you want and have them send you a data file, under certain conditions.
