South China Normal University has achieved a new milestone by having its discipline of Computer Science listed in the global top 1% of Essential Science Indicators (ESI), according to the latest ESI statistics, released by Clarivate Analytics. Additionally, SCNU’s Social Science (general) has ranked in the global top 5‰ of ESI for the very first time.

Based on the ESI statistics recently, SCNU ranks 921st in the world, 91 places up from the previous ranking (2022). The number of SCNU’s listed disciplines ranks fourth among Chinese teacher training universities.

So far, 12 disciplines of SCNU have been listed in the global top 1% of ESI, namely Materials Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Plant & Animal Science, Environment/Ecology, Social Science (general), Psychiatry/Psychology, Mathematics, Physics, Clinical Medicine, Neuroscience & Behavior, and Computer Science, together covering more than half of the ESI professional fields. Among the 12 disciplines, six disciplines have been listed in the global top 5‰ while three disciplines have been listed in the global top 3‰ of ESI.

The rise in the rank on the ESI strongly demonstrates the core competence and international academic influence of SCNU. Since South China Normal University implemented measures to promote the development of discipline construction, a great number of disciplines have increased their core competences and international influence.
