The data above were extracted from the Essential Science Indicators database of Thomson Reuters. This database, currently covering the period January 1998 through October 2008, surveys only journal articles (original research reports and review articles) indexed by Thomson Reuters. Articles are assigned to a category based on the journals in which they were published and Thomson Reuters’ journal-to-category field-definition scheme. Hot papers are limited to those articles published in the past two years. A paper is selected as a hot paper if it meets a citation frequency threshold determined for its field and bimonthly group. Citation frequency distributions are compiled for each field and cohort. Thresholds are set by finding the closest citation count that would select the top fraction of papers in each field and period. The fraction is set to retrieve about 0.1 per cent of papers.
