ESI is a quantitative analysis database based on more than 10 million literature records in more than 12,000 academic journals around the world as collected by Web of Science of Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters Intellectual Property and Technology Division) (SCIE/SSCI). Through this database, you can search for influential countries, institutions, papers, publications and research frontiers in related research fields. The ESI database, based on disciplines (a total of 22 disciplines), collects important scientific data covering tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of different research institutions around the world. The discipline ranking, based on this database, is one of the important indicators for evaluating the international academic level and influences of universities and scientific research institutions.
