What's Hot In...
Main Menu & Archive
This section of ScienceWatch.com provides coverage of the shifting roster of “Top Ten” papers (drawn from the Hot Papers Database of Thomson Reuters) in each of four main fields: Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, and Physics. These papers, published within the previous two years, have attracted a notably high number of citations in brand-new journal articles indexed by Thomson Reuters during a recent two-month period.
Each Top Ten list, updated bimonthly, is accompanied by expert discussion and analysis (including comments from the papers’ authors) written by one of four veteran scientist-journalists and longtime ScienceWatch.com contributors.
