New Database: Essential Science Indicators

Announcing a New Database: Essential Science Indicators

Essential Science Indicators (ESI) is a database that provides access to a comprehensive compilation of essential science performance statistics and science trends. The chief indicators of output, or productivity, are journal article publication counts.

For influence and impact measures, Essential Science Indicators employs both total citation counts and cites per paper scores. The former reveals gross influence while the latter shows weighted influence, also called impact.

Types of data featured in Essential Science Indicators include highly cited papers, hot papers, most cited scientist rankings, institutional (university, corporate, government research lab) rankings, national rankings, and journal rankings. Data sets are available in tables and charts. Another feature of Essential Science Indicators is a listing of research areas called Research Fronts, algorithmically derived topics reflecting research intensive and breakthrough areas of current science.

The data in Essential Science Indicators is limited to Thomson Scientific-indexed journals only.
