Only about 8% of highly cited papers in Essential Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters have one or more authors with corporate affiliations, that is, authors who work for a company or corporation as opposed to a university or other research institution.

The research fronts listed here have 20% or more of their affiliations from the corporate sector and at least ten highly cited papers. The strong representation of corporate authors may be taken as an indication of the commercial potential of the science or technology.

The list focuses, in alternate months, on areas in the physical and the biological sciences. The percentage of papers that have a corporate affiliation is given along with the name of the corporation that has the most highly cited papers in the front.
