 ScienceWatch

As part of this bimonthly processing, ScienceWatch.com selects the Research Fronts with the largest absolute increase in size in each of the 22 major fields covered by Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters. The size of a research front is determined by the number of core papers it contains. This Research Front on DIRECTION OF TRADE AGREEMENTS, OUTSOURCING AND WAGES from the field of Economics & Business was selected for mapping from the list of Top Topics for August 2008. The map is a diagrammatic representation of the28 core papers comprising the front in Economics & Business.

Each circle represents a highly cited paper whose bibliographic information is displayed when the user clicks on the circle. The lines between circles represent the strongest co-citation links for each paper (that is, indicating that the papers are frequently cited together). Papers close to each other on the map are generally more highly co-cited. The most recent paper(s) are indicated in pink. Go To String
