Of the 32 unique institutions that make up these lists, 19 are US-based institutions. Of the remaining 13, there are two each from France, Korea, and Japan, and one each from Australia, Bangladesh, Denmark, Germany, India, Sweden, and England.

The institutions tend towards a strong correlation with the highly cited authors. For instance, Harvard ranks at #1, and Harvard-affiliated researchers John Mekalanos, Steve Calderwood, and Matthew Waldor all appear on the author lists. Similarly, the University of Maryland (Rita Colwell), Tufts University (Andrew Camilli), ICDDR (Firdausi Qadri), Gothenburg University (Jan Holmgren), Johns Hopkins University (David Sack, Richard Sack), Princeton University (Bonnie Bassler), NICED (G.B. Nair, Thandavarayan Ramamurthy), and the International Vaccine Institute (John Clemens) also have member researchers in the top 20 author lists.

Overall General Information


 
Regarding Top 20 Scientists, Institutions, Journals, & Nations

Citation tables allow us to map compelling trends:

  • Are there particular nations or institutions that might be expected to dominate research in the Topic area, and do the numbers bear out these expectations, or are there surprises?
  • Who are the leading scientists and where are they located?

While these tables cannot offer a complete picture, the number of trends and anomalies that can be spotlighted or connected across categories is striking. The tables often lead to renewed perspectives to further explore and validate.

What are Special Topics?



Special Topics, from ScienceWatch.com, 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.

Read about the overall methodology for Special Topics in the "What are Special Topics?" page.
