Clarivate Report Shares Buzzworthy New Research Fronts

Clarivate published a global research report, “Identifying Research Fronts in the Web of Science: From Metrics to Meaning,” which features analysis from Clarivate’s Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). ISI used “clusters of citations from recently published papers to show the hot and emerging scientific topics that are currently attracting exceptional attention.” The report makes “use of the new and complementary metrics in Research Front data derived from the Web of Science to inform and improve research evaluation and highlight topics with economic and societal impact.”

The identification of popular scientific topics is facilitated “by concentrated clusters in the network of citations that link one publication with another. The examination of shared terminology in such clusters may reveal a breakthrough in an existing field or the realization of a novel, possibly cross disciplinary, area of research in the shape of an emerging field. Using a machine learning algorithm for network analysis[,] the report finds the precise location of Research Fronts in the knowledge network and uses science mapping and data visualization to highlight their value by using familiar examples [such as] CRISPR, 2D Materials, and Machine Learning.”
