Essential Science Indicators from Clarivate Analytics provides citation rankings of scientists, institutions, countries, and journals broken out by broad fields of science. A citation threshold is applied to each field ranking; scientists and institutions are selected if they are in the top 1% by total citations in a given field, and countries and journals must be in the top 50%. A total of 10 years of Clarivate Analytics citation data, plus some number of consecutive bimonthly periods during the current year, are used to determine the rankings. Since Essential Science Indicators is updated every two months, it is possible to identify the scientists, institutions, countries, and journals that have the largest percentage increase in total citations from one update to the next. We call these Rising Stars.

Following the latest bimonthly update to Essential Science Indicators, we have produced a listing of the Rising Stars from the first bimonthly period of 2017 to the second bimonthly period of 2017—that is, from February 2017 to April 2017—in their respective fields.

Among the scientists, the following are named as Rising Stars in their disciplines:
