Rankings of Most-Cited Articles listed are based on data from Thomson ISI® Web of Science. Hot Papers listed are articles published within the last 2 years receiving the most citations over the most recent 2-month period, as identified by Thomson ISI® Essential Scientific Indicators. Most-Accessed Articles listed are based on article web view data collected following COUNTER-compliant ACS Usage Reports. Listings are organized by journal. Please check back to these article listings frequently, as regular updates are made throughout the year.
As reported in 2006 Thomson Scientific (ISI) Journal Citation Reports®, the peer-reviewed journals of the American Chemical Society rank #1 in citations or ISI® Impact Factor in the seven core chemistry categories as well as eight additional categories ranging from agriculture and crystallography to polymer science and nanoscience & nanotechnology.
Hot Papers are articles published within the last 2 years receiving the most citations over the most recent 2-month period. In a typical 2-month period, the ISI® could recognize more than 200-300 total Hot Papers in chemistry alone, and amongst those Hot Papers in chemistry, ACS journals are typically responsible for nearly half of the top 100 ‘hottest’ papers in chemistry! Thomson's ISI® also recognizes articles in additional categories such as the Agricultural Sciences, Environment/Ecology, Engineering, and Materials Science, and ACS Publications are well represented in these categories as well.
