1 in 8 of Thomson Scientific's 2005 Top 40 'hottest papers' from three Oxford Journals titles

Oxford Journals is delighted to announce that five papers from three of its titles have been included in Thomson Scientific's recently published Top 40 "Red-Hot Research Papers" for 2005. Of these a paper from Bioinformatics is the fifth most highly cited research article of the year, while Nucleic Acids Research has attained fifth place overall in terms of numbers of papers in the "Red-hot" list. A further article from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute was also included.

Bioinformatics, the leading journal in its field, publishes new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. Its January 2005 issue included the article by Barrett, Fry, Maller and Daly, Haploview: analysis and visualization of LD and haplotype maps [http://bioinformatics.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/21/2/263?maxtoshow=&HITS=10&hits=10&RESULTFORMAT=&fulltext=Haploview&searchid=1&FIRSTINDEX=0&resourcetype=HWCIT], which was recorded by Thomson Scientific as receiving a total of 90 citations in 2005. The paper was the fifth most cited overall in 2005.

With three articles in the top 40, Nucleic Acids Research, (NAR) was ranked as the "hottest" single-discipline journal in the world and the fifth "hottest" journal overall. NAR is a fully Open Access journal, providing rapid publication of leading edge research into the nucleic acids. In January 2005 it became the first title from Oxford Journals, and indeed the first journal of its size and prestige, to adopt a fully open access model.

For several years, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has been ranked as the most-cited original-research cancer journal by Thomson Scientific in its annual Journal Citation Reports. The article Clinical and Biological Features Associated With Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Gene Mutations in Lung Cancers [http://jncicancerspectrum.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/jnci;97/5/339] was cited a total of 43 times, ranking it at 33rd in Thomson Scientific's review. JNCI has also been named as the only specialist journal in the top ten journals in clinical medicine, according to ScienceWatch's citation analysis of the hottest journals of the millennium [http://www.sciencewatch.com/jan-feb2005/sw_jan-feb2005_page1.htm].

'Thomson Scientific's "red-hot research papers" summarise areas that have been of significant interest to the research community over the last year," commented Martin Richardson, Managing Director, Oxford Journals.

He continued, 'the impressive results for these Oxford Journals titles emphasises once again the high quality of our collection, and our continued excellence in providing researchers with the cutting edge peer reviewed, highly cited content that they want.'
