Beginning in mid-February 2008, the 1997-2007 online version of the Science Watch newsletter, ESI-Topics.com, and in-cites.com, will all be featured together on the redesigned ScienceWatch.com. All previous content from the three sites will be permanently archived, and remain accessible from any existing bookmarks to the archived pages. No new content will be added to this site. Updates and new content (updated biweekly) are available at ScienceWatch.com now.

he ESI Special Topics Web site is designed to complement Essential Science Indicators in providing citation analyses and commentary for selected scientific research areas that have experienced notable recent advances or are of special current interest. Each topic is prefaced with a description of its relation to the main Essential Science Indicators rankings and the methodology used to assemble the data from the Essential Science Indicators database. A new topic is added monthly. The data presented for each topic include citation rankings for scientists, institutions, nations, and journals. Most special topics also feature interviews and essays by prominent scientists in the area.

This Month's Special Topic:

Schizophrenia

New interviews & features added in OCTOBER 2007:

ESI Special Topics also spotlights New Hot Papers, Fast Breaking Papers (both have some comments/mini-interviews and are updated bi-monthly), Emerging Research Fronts, Fast Moving Fronts, and Top Topics, all of which deal with current and emerging trends in specialized areas of research. Methodologies for the various entities and commentary on data interpretation are also included.
