The data above were extracted from Thomson Reuters Essential Science Indicators database. This database, cur­rently covering the period January 1999 through April 2009, 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 the journal-to-category field-definition scheme used by Thomson Reuters. Hot papers are limited to those articles published in the past two years (here, 2007-09). 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.
