Hot papers in Economics and Business

April 21, 2011

The data above were extracted from the Thomson Reuters Essential Science Indicators database. This database, currently covering the period January 2000 through December 2010, surveys only journal articles (original research reports and review articles) that have been 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. Individual articles published in multidisciplinary journals, such as Science and Nature, are assigned to their appropriate fields. Hot papers are limited to those articles indexed 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.

Featured here are current hot papers in economics and business with the highest number of citations to date. Most were published in 2009, one in 2008, and none in 2010, since citations require some time to accumulate.
