Top Topics Research Front Map - February 2009

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 AIR POLLUTION AND HEALTH from the field of Environment/Ecology was selected for mapping from the list of Top Topics for February 2009 (data from the fifth bimonthly period of 2008). The map is a diagrammatic representation of the 25 core papers comprising the front in Environment/Ecology.

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. 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.
