Indicators

Map View by Top / Hot / Highly Cited Papers

Indicators are accompanied by an interactive Map View that displays the concentration of research by countries.  Top Papers, the sum of Highly Cited Papers and Hot Papers is the default view. Changing the paper view to either Hot Papers or Highly Cited updates the concentrations on the map.  Hovering over a country displays the individual data for that country, and clicking on it updates the metrics in the ranked list below the Map View with only data for that selected country. 


The legend that sits in the lower left corner of the map represents the color gradient from countries with no papers to those countries with the highest concentration of papers. 

Indicators Table

Indicators are generated from the Results List, Filter Results By, and Include Results For selections you make in the report.

The first column of the table varies depending on the selection you make in the Results List dropdown. You can sort any column by clicking the column heading. Additionally, the Countries-Territories column, when displayed, allows you to filter the values in the column.

The remaining columns in the table are as follows:

Additional indicators can be added by clicking Customize:

The options in Customize change based on your paper type selection. Custom thresholds can also be applied to filter results based on number of papers, citations and citations per paper. More than one custom threshold can be applied in a single instance. 

Total Numbers in a List:

The total number of entities in a ranked list appears at the top of the data grid, letting you know the size of the list without the need to scroll to the bottom.

Bar Graph

The bar graph indicates the proportion of top, hot or highly cited papers in each group relative to the group with the largest number of top, hot or highly cited papers.

For example, the following excerpt from a report shows indicators for Research Fields. The ranked list is sorted by Top Papers. Clinical Medicine is at the top, so its bar graph is at 100%. The field with the second-highest number of top papers is Chemistry, and that number is 61% of the number of top papers in Clinical Medicine. Physics has the third-highest number of top papers--47% of the number of top papers in Clinical Medicine.


Click the bar graph to go to the document list of all top papers in the field. Click any of the Research Fields to go to the Citation Trends report.
