Since the 1980s, if not earlier, supersymmetry has reigned as the
best available candidate for physics beyond the standard model—a
theory of almost everything that would unite the weak, strong, and
electromagnetic interactions in one global formulation, while predicting an
entire universe of as-yet-undiscovered elementary particles.
In this analysis, Special Topics examines the literature on
supersymmetry over the past decade and over the past two

Special Topics is designed to complement Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters in providing citation analyses and commentary for selected scientific research areas that have experienced notable recent advances or are of special current interest.
Each topic is prefaced with a description of its relation to the main Essential Science Indicators rankings and the methodology used to assemble the data from the Essential Science Indicators database. Occasionally, the data are drawn from the Web of Science® database rather than the Essential Science Indicators database—in each case, the source data is clearly noted.
