Clarivate launches Research Horizon Navigator to pinpoint future breakthrough areas
June 4, 2024 - Clarivate, a leading global provider of transformative intelligence, launched Research Horizon Navigator, a powerful new AI-native module within InCites Benchmarking and Analytics that highlights emerging research topics where future breakthroughs are likely to occur. Academics, funding agencies, government research organizations and research strategists will be able to identify new research trends and determine the most impactful areas for future investments and strategies.

Within Research Horizon Navigator, each topic is labeled with a research theme assigned by generative AI. Each topic also offers an interactive visualization showing how papers are connected and includes an overview where users can explore which authors and institutions have contributed.
