A press release from linkurl:Thomson Scientific;http://thomsonscientific.com lists 17 of the hottest researchers from 2005-2006 based on the number of Hot Papers published in that time. Hot Papers, as our readers know are papers, generally on the order of two years old, that have been cited much more than papers of a similar date and age (50 to 100 times as often according to Thomson). Immunologist Shizuo Akira of Osaka University tops the list with 7 publications in the specified time frame. He's the only one from Japan on the list and the only country on the list to post more than one "Hot" researcher is the United States with 10. Less surprising is that oncology and physics top scientific fields with numbers of "Hot" researchers, 10 and 3 respectively. This would likely be due to the large multi author papers in those fields.
