ESI Hot and Highly Cited Papers make it easy to pinpoint the most influential research in a field. For subscribers, ESI is integrated with Web of Science Core Collection, which means that you can easily identify the top-performing papers in your results via ESI icons.
Highly Cited Papers are papers that perform in the top 1% based on the number of citations received when compared to other papers published in the same field in the same year. Click on the Highly Cited Paper icon for more details about an item.
Hot Papers are papers published in the last two years that are receiving citations quickly after publication. These papers have been cited enough times in the most recent bimonthly period to place them in the top 0.1% when compared to papers in the same field and added to the database in the same period.
You can use the ESI Top Papers refine option in WoS Core Collection to limit your results to the Hot and/or Highly Cited Papers in a set of results. This integration could be used to support many people at your institution:
Researchers/Faculty: Use the refine option to quickly limit a topic-based set of results to recently published, high-impact papers in that research area. For scientists monitoring the performance of their own work, this refine option allows them to highlight their own top-performing papers.
Administrators: You can identify and track your institution's full set of Hot and Highly Cited research in WoS Core Collection. Start by collecting your research using the Organizations-Enhanced tool or Address field, and then refine to the ESI Top Papers. What fields are they in? Which authors are publishing top papers? New papers may be identified as highly cited with each bimonthly update.
You can use ESI to identify the research fields, in which your organization is a Highly Cited Institution. This means that your institution's work in a field has accrued enough citations to place the institution in the top 1% of organizations producing research in the same field. Please visit the Learn the Basics guide for a review of the ESI data parameters.
The table shows you the number of papers an organization produced in that field within the ESI dataset, the number of citations those papers received, cites per paper for that set, and the number of Hot and/or Highly Cited Papers in that field.
After identifying these ESI fields, you may want to compare your organization to other Highly Cited Institutions in the same field.
