ESI is a resource that enables researchers to conduct ongoing, quantitative analyses of research performance and track trends in science. With all the resources they need in one place, ESI can determine the influential individuals, institutions, papers, publications, and countries in their field of study — as well as emerging research areas that could 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 scientific databases. ESI covers 10 million articles in 22 fields of research, and is updated every two months.
