Essential Science Indicators (ESI) is a basic analysis and evaluation tool for measuring the performance of scientific research and tracking the development trend of science, which was launched in 2001 by the Institute for Scientific and Technological Information (ISI), a world-famous academic information publishing institution. It is an econometric analysis database based on more than 10 million publications in more than 11 thousand academic journals collected by Web of Science (SCIE/SSCI), Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters). ESI covers 22 disciplines, and the division is based on the category of the periodicals. Now, ESI has become one of the important tools for evaluating the international academic level and influence of universities, academic institutions and countries or regions in the world.
