Clarivate Analytics and the Chinese Academy of Sciences Publish Research Fronts Report

Clarivate Analytics partnered with the Chinese Academy of Sciences on their fourth annual report, “Research Fronts 2017,” which identifies 143 prominent areas of scientific research, “including 100 hot and 43 emerging specialty areas spanning 10 broad areas of sciences and social sciences, based on a comprehensive analysis of scientific literature citations.” Topics in the 100 hot areas include “Research on genome editing in plants and the utility in crops,” “Types and characterization of gas shale pore systems,” and “Genomics research on the origins, evolution and migration of human beings.” Topics in the emerging areas include “Analysis of tree rings and its application in environment and climate change study” and “Zika virus infections and prevention.”

The report is based on 9,690 research fronts (i.e., “specialties discovered when clusters of highly cited papers are frequently cited together, reflecting a specific commonality in the research”) generated by the Essential Science Indicators database from 2011 to 2016. The Mandarin version of the report is out now, with the English version expected on Nov. 9.
