EDP Sciences articles classified as 'highly cited' in Essential Science Indicators
- 05 Apr 2019

Two articles from the EDP Sciences journals EPJ Applied Physics and Mechanics&Industry have been recognised as highly cited papers on Web of Science using data from Essential Science IndicatorsSM. Only the top 1% of articles achieve this status.

Essential Science IndicatorsSM, hosted on the InCites platform, collates data on highly cited papers and shares it with Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics. These papers sit within the top 1% of each of ESI's 22 subject areas and are defined as "…this highly cited paper received enough citations to place it in the top 1% of its academic field based on a highly cited threshold for the field and publication year."

'Recent advances in the understanding of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges' (Massines et al., 2009), published in EPJ Applied Physics, discusses the physics of homogeneous dielectric barrier discharges at atmospheric pressure along with the mechanisms controlling homogeneity during gas breakdown and discharge development.

'The Onera elsA CFD software: input from research and feedback from industry' (Cambier et al., 2013), published in Mechanics&Industry. This paper presents recent accomplishments regarding Onera elsA CFD software, from research and industry for a wide range of aerospace applications.

International Journal of Optics accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded
- 15 Jan 2019

Hindawi has announced that the International Journal of Optics has been accepted into the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), an index of more than 8,500 notable and significant journals from Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science. The addition of the journal to SCIE means that published work will now be more discoverable to a wider audience, as well as providing extra recognition for the authors, editors, and reviewers. It also means that the journal will receive its first Impact Factor when Clarivate Analytics release their 2018 Journal Citation Report later this year.

Prior to acceptance into this key indexing database, the journal underwent a rigorous evaluation process. Researchers who have written and reviewed for the journal have contributed hugely to its success. Indeed, there have been numerous interesting papers published in the International Journal of Optics over the past two years. These include a review article written by Prof. Garmire of Dartmouth College discussing the history and applications of stimulated brillouin, a research article authored by Dr Mahnke et al. reporting the creation of solitons in amplifying fibers, as well as a research article written by Dr Zulkipli et al. discussing how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can be used to provide accurate data for road design. This final article was included in a Special Issue on optical 3D imaging technology, guest edited by Prof Xiaowei Li of Sichuan University.

Hindawi plans to continue building on this success in the coming year through a range of new projects and initiatives - by continuing to collaborate with their valued editors, authors, reviewers, and readers; by improving the all round journal experience from submission, through review, upto publication and reading; and by striving for ever greater openness and excellence in everything they do.

MDPI's Plants and Foods accepted for inclusion in SCIE
- 29 Nov 2018

Academic open-access publisher Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI) has announced that two of its journals, Plants and Foods, have been accepted for inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) in the Web of Science Core Collection, as well as Current Contents - Agriculture, Biology&Environmental Sciences. Meanwhile, Plants continues to be listed in BIOSIS Previews.

Both journals were established in 2012 and have since made an impact in the scientific community. For example, research published in Plants has been cited more than 880 times in Scopus in 2017 and 2018 to date. Out of four hundred research articles published in Foods since inception, 33 have been cited at least ten times.

Foods and Plants are due to receive first Journal Impact Factors based on Web of Science data in next year's release of the Journal Citation Reports in mid-2019.

Clarivate Analytics' annual Highly Cited Researchers list reveals influential scientific researchers and their institutions
- 27 Nov 2018

Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, has published its annual Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list. Now in its fifth year, the citation analysis identifies influential researchers as determined by their peers around the globe - those who have consistently won recognition in the form of high citation counts over a decade. The Web of Science serves as the basis for the regular listings of researchers whose citation records position them in the top 1% by citations for their field and year.

This year, a new cross-field category has been added to recognise researchers with substantial influence in several fields but who do not have enough highly cited papers in any one field to be chosen.

Key findings reveal that about 4000+ Highly Cited Researchers are named in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences. The United States is home to the highest number of HCRs, with 2,639 authors. The United Kingdom boasts 546. China (mainland) is gaining fast with 482. Harvard University keeps its pole position on the list.

Among the 4,058 researchers named as Highly Cited in the 21 Essential Science Indicator (ESI) fields, 194, or 4.8%, appear in two ESI fields. An elite 24 researchers, hailing from North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, appear in three fields.

New for 2018 - approximately 2,000 additional researchers have also been identified as having exceptional performance based on high impact papers in several fields. Nations or regions with more than 40% of their Highly Cited Researchers selected in the cross-field category are Sweden (53%), Austria (53%), Singapore (47%), Denmark (47%), China (43%) and South Korea (42%).

This year's list continues to recognise researchers whose citation records position them in the highest ranks of influence and impact: it includes 17 Nobel laureates, including two announced this year - James P. Allison, Physiology or Medicine, and William D. Nordhaus, Economic Sciences. Also included are 56 Clarivate Analytics Citation Laureates - individuals who, through citation analysis, have been identified as researchers 'of Nobel class' and potential Nobel Prize recipients.

Australian research institutes continue to impress; the number of researchers recognised as Highly Cited has more than doubled in four years, from 80 in 2014 to 170 in 2018, among those selected in one or more of the 21 fields. Australian research institutions appear to have recruited a significant number of HCRs since 2014 as well as increasing their number of homegrown HCRs.

China (mainland) continues to march its way up the list and has overtaken Germany to reach the third spot on the top 10 country/region list.

Governmental research institutions also feature prominently with the US National Institutes of Health, the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research, appearing second in the list of Highly Cited Researchers. The Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Max Planck Society also feature in the top 10.

The Highly Cited Researchers represent more than 60 nations, but more than 80% of them are from the 10 nations listed in the table and 70% from the first five - a remarkable concentration of top talent.

The methodology that determines the who's who of high-impact researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute of Scientific Information at Clarivate Analytics. It uses Essential Science Indicators, a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science, the premier web-based environment of scientific and scholarly research literature totalling over 33,000 journals.
