SCIENTISTS, INSTITUTIONS, COUNTRIES, & JOURNALS WITH THE LARGEST INCREASE IN TOTAL CITATIONS
A citation threshold is applied to each field ranking; scientists and institutions are selected if they are in the top 1% by total citations in a given field, and countries and journals must be in the top 50%.
A total of 10 years of Thomson Reuters citation data, plus some number of consecutive bimonthly periods during the current year, are used to determine the rankings. Since Essential Science Indicators is updated every two months, it is possible to identify entities that are most improved from one update to the next; i.e., those scientists, institutions, countries, and journals that show the largest percentage increase in total citations.
The information found in the links below provides a listing of the Rising Star entities in each of Essential Science Indicators 22 fields, for the most recent bimonthly update, and for earlier updates as well.
