Essential Science Indicators can determine the influential individuals, institutions, papers, publications, and countries in their field of study — as well as emerging research areas that can impact their work. This unique and comprehensive compilation of science performance statistics and science trends data is based on journal article publication counts and citation data from Thomson Reuters databases. It is an analytical resource for policymakers, administrators, analysts and information specialists in government agencies, universities, corporations, private laboratories, publishing companies and foundations, as well as members of the scientific press and recruiters. Essential Science Indicators (ESI) is useful tool to help answer questions about research performance. For example: Which institutions produce the most highly-cited research in a particular field? Where does our institution rank in this group? Who are the most influential researchers in this field? Is our institutions citation activity on an upward or downward trend? How did changes in funding influence the impact of research in a particular country or institute? Which are the hottest topics in research right now? How does my article’s citation count compare to similar articles? ESI produces a variety of metrics and features such as Top 1% of Scientists and Institutions; Top 50% of Journals and Countries/Territories; Highly Cited Papers: Top 1% of cited papers per discipline; Hot Papers: Papers from the last two years that were cited the most (top 0.1%) in the last 2 months; Research Fronts: Creates clusters of highly cited articles, useful for identifying ground breaking discoveries
