Essential Science Indicators (ESI) is a basic analytical evaluation tool for measuring scientific research performance and tracking scientific development trends in the international arena. It is also recognized globally as an evaluation indicator for the academic level and influence of universities, academic institutions, countries and regions. Covered 22 subjects and is updated every two months (single month update). The ESI subject rankings reflect the international level of that discipline, and an ESI Top 1% discipline is often considered “international high-level disciplines”.

This ESI data cover time lasts from January 1st, 2008 to June 30th, 2018. In the field of materials science, 829 institutions worldwide entered into the top 1% ESI, and our school ranked the 795th.
