Thomson Reuters announces the world's most influential scientific minds
- 18 Jan 2016

The Intellectual Property (IP) and Science business of Thomson Reuters, has announced the release of 'The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds,' a citation analysis identifying the scientists - as determined by their fellow researchers - who have made the most significant global impact within their respective field of study.

The two-part study includes an 11 year assessment of research paper citations to determine the leaders within 21 broad fields of science and a ranking of 2015's top scientists or 'hottest researchers,' revealing significant growth in cancer genomics and improvements in converting solar cells into renewable energy.

The report draws on data and analysis performed by Thomson Reuters IP&and Science bibliometric experts via InCites Essential Science Indicators℠, a leading web-based research analytics platform and 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 for scientific and scholarly research.

The longer-range study, widely known as the Highly Cited Researchers, recognises nearly 3,000 scientists who published the greatest number of articles ranking among the top one percent by citations received in their respective fields in each paper's year of publication. Analysts assessed more than 120,000 papers indexed between 2003 and 2013 throughout each area of study.

The 2015 hottest researchers ranking spotlights the scientific community's emerging trends and 19 innovators, who recently published at least 14 papers with notably high levels of citations. The list was identified by tabulating citations within the Web of Science recorded during calendar year 2014 for papers published between 2012 and 2014.

Stacey B. Gabriel of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard tops the list for the second consecutive year for her contributions to the Cancer Genome Atlas project, providing molecular portraits of tumors afflicting the breast, lung and other areas of the body. Her most recent papers examine the genetic underpinnings of schizophrenia and Alzheimer's. She is followed by newcomer, Oxford University's Henry J. Snaith, a physics and material scientist for his work on perovskite solar cells to advance solar energy technology.

Emerald partners with Thomson Reuters to help maximize the impact of authors' work
- 30 Nov 2015

Academic publisher Emerald Group Publishing has announced a partnership with Thomson Reuters on its newly-launched Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) to maximize the scholarly impact of authors' work.

Emerald has had 43 journals accepted in ESCI, which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science (previously ISI) to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields.

43 Emerald journals have been accepted by ESCI. All ESCI journals are searchable, discoverable and citable.

Authors and researchers whose work is accepted in ESCI will be given real-time insight into a journal's citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections. They will be able to measure the contribution of an article in specific disciplines and identify potential collaborators for expanded research.

ESCI provides Web of Science users with expanded options to discover relevant scholarly content. ESCI is an edition of Web of Science, so subscribers will gain access through their existing subscription.

ESCI will extend the collection of publications in Web of Science, including high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. Journals in ESCI are searchable, discoverable and citable; authors and researchers get real-time insight into a journal's citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections as well. Among those is Journal Citation Reports, which includes the impact factor.

IOS Press journals to be included in ESCI are: Advances in Neuroimmune Biology; Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging; Computability; Intelligent Decision Technologies; Intelligenza Artificiale; International Journal of RF Technologies-Research and Applications; Journal of Berry Research; Journal of Computer Security; Journal of Huntingtons Disease; Journal of Integrated Design&Process Science; and Multiagent and Grid Systems.

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association has announced that the Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (JAPNA) has been selected for coverage in Thomson Reuters products and services. The Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, published bi-monthly by Sage Publication Inc., is the official journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (APNA) and a respected conduit for publishing and disseminating psychiatric-mental health nursing scholarly research. Articles published in the journal will now be broadly indexed and accessible through Thomson Reuters Web-of-Science, significantly expanding their potential reach and impact on the field of psychiatric-mental health nursing.

Journals included in Thomson Reuters indexing are largely considered the world's leading scientific journals due to a rigorous selection process based on basic publishing standards, international diversity, and citation analysis. Thomson Reuters 2014 Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) shows an inaugural impact factor of 0.977 for the Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association. This impact factor, which is based on the frequency of citations a journal's average article garners over a specified period, is the highest among psychiatric nursing journals.

The Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association (JAPNA) publishes psychiatric-mental health nursing research and scholarship that contributes both to knowledge development and the continuum of psychiatric-mental health care. Content spans mental health promotion and psychiatric treatment and recovery at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention across the lifespan. JAPNA circulates important developments and issues applicable to psychiatric-mental health nursing practice, education, research, theory, and policy. Articles, editorials, and special features describe critical and timely analysis of emerging issues and trends and discuss innovative models of practice as they are related to changing systems of healthcare.
