This analytical tool offers data for ranking scientists, institutions, countries, and journals. ESI thus enables researchers to conduct ongoing, quantitative analyses of research performance and track trends in science. The compilation of science performance statistics and trends data is based on journal article publication counts and citation data from Thomson Scientific databases, which track a multidisciplinary selection of over 11,000 journals from around the world. Specifically, using ESI, one can:

  • Determine the research output and impact in specific fields of research
  • Rank top countries, journals, scientists, institutions and companies by field of research
  • Evaluate potential employees, collaborators, reviewers, and peers
