The data above were extracted from Thomson Scientific’s Essential Science Indicators database. This database, currently covering the period January 1997 to December 2007, surveys only journal articles (original research reports and review articles) indexed by Thomson Scientific. Articles are assigned to a category based on the journals in which they were published and Thomson Scientific’s journal-to-category field definition scheme.

Both articles tabulated and citation counts to those articles are for the period indicated. 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. The scope of hot papers in economics and business listed above represents a wide range of subjects, some quite contemporary, including the changing nature of the film industry, the economic effects of file sharing on the music industry and the impact of informal communication on book sales.
