For each of the 22 research fields:

  • Web of Science Documents is the total number of documents in Web of Science in the current 10-year period
  • Cites is the total number of citations received by those Web of Science documents
  • Cites/Paper is the quotient obtained by dividing Cites by Web of Science documents
  • Top Papers is the sum of hot papers and highly cited papers. More specifically, it is the number of papers in the top 1% of papers in the field for the past ten years, plus the number of papers in the past two years that received a very high number of citations in the current two-month period. This total discounts duplicates, so that a paper that is both hot and highly cited is counted only once.
  • Cites to Top Papers is the number of citations received by the top papers.

Top Papers Bar Graph

The bar graph serves two purposes. First, it indicates the proportion of top papers in each field relative to the field with the largest number of top papers. For example:

Here, the Indicators table is sorted by Top Papers. Clinical Medicine is at the top, so its bar graph is at 100%. The field with the largest second highest number of top papers is Chemistry, and that number is approximately 50% of the number of top papers in Clinical Medicine. Physics has the third highest number of top papers--43% of the number of top papers in Clinical Medicine.
