According to the latest statistics of ESI on May 10th, UESTC’s discipline of Biology and Biochemistry made its debut in the top 1% of ESI, becoming UESTC’s seventh discipline that has entered the top 1% of ESI after the disciplines of Engineering, Material Science, Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, as well as Neuroscience and Behavior.


The statistics released by ESI this time covers a time span from January 1st, 2008 to February 28th, 2018, during which UESTC saw 280 SCI/SSCI journal articles published in this field, involving 5818 citations or an average of 20.78 citations of each article, and 20 high-impact papers. Besides, among thoes 966 institutions whose discpline of Biology and Biochemistry has reached the top 1% of ESI, UESTC ranks 956th.

In addition, the latest statistics of ESI indicates that UESTC’s discipline of Engineering ranks 84th or top 0.63‰ of ESI in the world, firmly among the top 1% of ESI, and the rank of disciplines of Computer Science, Material Science, Physics, Chemistry and Neuroscience are respectively among top 1.54‰, 3.55‰, 7.21‰, 8.51‰and 8.15‰.

Since Engineering entered the 1‰ of ESI for the first time in July 2016, UESTC’s discplines of Chemistry, Neuroscience and Behavior, and Biology and Biochemistry have been added to the top 1% list of ESI, manifesting that visible differences have been made after UESTC vigorously implemented the discipline development strategy in recent years, and the progress of “Double First-class University” construction has been further accelerated.
