ESI is an analysis database based on over 10 million articles published in 11, 000 plus scholarly journals that have been included in SCI (Science Citation Index) and SSCI (Social Science Citation Index). The ESI-Hot Papers refer to the articles published in the recent two years that have received citations ranked in the top 0.1% in their respective fields in recent two months. ESI-Highly Cited Papers, on the other hand, are the ones that have crossed the highly-cited thresholds to rank top 1% in their corresponding fields within the most recent two-month period in their publishing year.
