About the Journals



The resulting database contained 478 journals. Ranked by three separate measures: citations, papers, and citations per paper. Source dates: January 1, 2001-September 26, 2011. *Unless otherwise specified, all rankings have a >= 5 paper threshold for all measures.

Look for complelte threshold information for the Special Topic of Supersymmetry in the "Methodology & Threshold" tab of the opening page for this topic.

Overall General Information


 
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 Clarivate Analytics 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.
