Question: How do I understand a research topic’s development and trend quickly?

Step 1
Go to Web of Science (http://isiknowledge.com/wos). Enter “hydrogeology” AND “volcanics” under search field Topic. Click Search button.

Step 2
There are many articles. Click “Create Citation Report” button to get the research trend.

Step 3
Look at Published Items in Each Year – this shows you a distribution bar chart showing published items in each year for “hydrogeology” and “volcanics” records over last 20 years.

Step 4
Look at Citations in Each Year – this shows a distribution chart showing citations in each year for “hydrogeology” and “volcanics” records over last 20 years.

Step 5
The total Results, Sum of Times Cited, Average Citations per Item and h-index are found here.

Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behaviour.
