In recent years, closely focusing on the primary task of high-quality development, our school has continuously improved its sensitivity in discipline construction, showed great concern about development frontiers, served national strategies, promoted interdisciplinary integration, combined disciplinary advantage resources, gradually highlighting disciplinary characteristics and advantages, and significantly improving the overall strength of the discipline. In 2023, our university added another discipline to top 1% of disciplines in ESI in the world, laying a solid foundation for a new round of the high-level university construction.
ESI is an econometric analysis database based on the ISI citation index database SCI and SSCI. ESI is an authoritative retrieval tool for collecting and reflecting citations of papers in major disciplines in the world. ESI has become an important tool for evaluating the international academic level and influence of universities, academic institutions, and even countries and regions. Entering among top 1% in ESI reflects the paper quality and academic competitiveness of scientific research institutions of universities.
