The Institute for Scientific Information previously published the Current Concepts series and the Science Citation Index. This book is an index of articles in 102 active research areas of biochemistry and molecular biology. A core document or article is selected statistically by the number of times it is cited in the literature of 1978. Co-citation indicates the number of times a pair of documents is cited together in each of other documents, giving an idea of correlation or clustering of related fields. A map is made of such clustering, termed the global map of research specialties.
Under each of the 102 research specialties is given the following information: (1) a one- to two-page introductory summary by an expert with a 1980 supplement, (2) related clustered articles, (3) cited core documents with the number of times they are cited, with a two- to three-line abstract, (4) key citing documents with
