MAPS OF SCIENCE

Field of Physics - February 2010

This map of physics is based on research-front data for the six-year period ending in August 2009. The map shows the major fields of physics linked together in a network based on the same principles as our research-front maps showing highly cited papers. In the case of a field map, we first identify all research fronts in Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters which were assigned to the Physics category based on journal. Then the linkage between fronts is computed based on how often they are co-cited—that is, the frequency that current papers cite the two fronts jointly. A clustering process then groups fronts into larger aggregates. Thus, each circle in the map represents a group, or cluster, of research fronts on a broad topic in physics. Some of these broad topics bring in literature from other fields, such as computer science, chemistry, and materials science, which are shown in the descriptions below the map. Hot fields containing concentrations of recent highly cited papers are shown in yellow. Annotations may have been added to this map which represent the main research themes. These appear as labels attached to specific regions on the maps. Additional information about Research Fronts.
