Comparing with the last ESI data, another 23 papers were increased and 339 cites were added.

What’s more, the latest data indicated that our ranks of advantageous disciplines also improved in comparison to the last time: Engineering Science reached top 0.896%, Computer Science 3.26%, Material Science 4.45%, Physics 6.98% and Chemistry 9.5%.

Following Engineering Science reaching at the top 1% of ESI in July of last year, this year both Chemistry and Neuroscience and Behavior have reached top 1%. Papers of UESTC on SCI Section Iand IIrose to 42.2% from the previous 28.8%. All above shows that UESTC’s “Three Action Plans” have delivered significant results especially in the construction of science disciplines and improvement of academic level, and have speeded up UESTC’s mission to be world “Double-First Class” university.
