According to the latest Essential Science Indicators (ESI) data released by Clarivate Analytics on May 9th (covering the period from January 1, 2014 to February 29, 2024), the Environmental Science and Ecology discipline at SCMU has entered the global top 1% ranking for the first time, becoming the fourth discipline at our university to achieve this milestone.

The latest ESI data shows that a total of 9,019 research institutions worldwide are ranked in the top 1%. SCMU has published 4,651 papers, with a total citation count of 82,913, ranking 2,282nd globally. We have 64 highly cited papers and 3 hot papers. Currently, our university has four disciplines – Chemistry, Engineering, Materials Science, and Environmental Science and Ecology – ranked in the global top 1%, with their respective global rankings at 710/1905 (approx. 37.27%), 1289/2429 (approx. 53.07%), 939/1391 (approx. 67.51%), and 1842/1872 (approx. 98.40%). (Note: The percentage ranking is calculated as institution rank/total number of institutions. The smaller this value, the higher the institution’s ranking.)

It is worth noting that the Essential Science Indicators (ESI) database is a fundamental analytical and evaluation tool for measuring scientific research performance and tracking scientific development trends on an international scale. It is also widely recognized as a crucial indicator for evaluating the international academic level and influence of universities, academic institutions, and countries/regions. Whether a discipline enters the global top 1% of ESI is an important indicator of its world-class status and a key criterion for assessing a university’s core research competitiveness. SCMU attaches great importance to the development of world-class disciplines. Through strengthened management, organization, strategic planning, and continuous cultivation of new productive forces by deepening the intrinsic discipline-building efforts, SCMU has achieved a new breakthrough in ESI discipline construction.
