If you're applying for grant funding or submitting a tenure portfolio, you'll want to be able to say something about the performance of your work. If your institution subscribes to Essential Science Indicators, you can easily determine if any of your papers are at the top of their field for citation impact. Top-performing articles, reviews, or proceedings papers will be flagged with an ESI Hot or Highly Cited Paper icon in Web of Science Core Collection, a research discovery database. This guide will give you background about Hot and Highly Cited Papers and walk you through the steps to find your own top papers.
ESI Hot and Highly Cited Papers will display these icons in a Web of Science Core Collection results summary list. A limited number of document types and years are examined for the purposes of ESI. For a review of the ESI dataset, please visit the Learn the Basics guide.
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.
To see whether any of your papers are Hot or Highly Cited, you'll need to start in Web of Science Core Collection.
