Clarivate Clarivate and the Chinese Academy of Sciences release annual joint report to identify 165 research fronts. In the report, "Research Fronts" are defined when scientists undertake the fundamental scholarly act of citing one another's work, reflecting a specific commonality in their research – sometimes experimental data, or a method, a concept or hypothesis. Research Fronts are discovered by tracking the world's most significant scientific and scholarly literature and the patterns and groupings of how papers are cited – in particular, clusters of papers that are frequently cited together over a five-year period. A Research Front is then formed when such a group of highly cited papers attains a certain level of activity and coherence. For the report, experts used the Clarivate Essential Science Indicators (ESI) database which is built on the foundation of the Web of Science index, to conduct co-citation analysis. The 2022 report starts with 12,610 Research Fronts in the ESI from 2016 to 2021 and aims to discover which Research Fronts were most active or developing most rapidly. [Full Announcement].
