From the database of
Science IndicatorsSM, this list of Emerging Research
Fronts has been generated by a comparison of the data sets for the current
period of March 2002-February 29, 2008, and the previous period of January
2002-December 31, 2007 (sliding 6-year period).* Of the 6,161 Research
Fronts in the March 2002-February 29, 2008 file, a total of 1,316 (21%)
were new. The following Research Fronts were selected for mapping from the
list of Emerging Research Fronts from this period:
Evaluating the effectiveness of various approaches to
increasing physical activity.
STELLAR POPULATION SYNTHESIS 2003 RESOLUTION; GALACTIC
STELLAR-SUBSTELLAR INITIAL MASS FUNCTION
Recent progress in stellar evolution theory.

corrected from January 2002-February 29, 2008 to March 2002-February 29,
2008 on July 1, 2009. This correction did not include the Emerging Research
