Title: SLAC/SPIRES Announces the Top-Cited Papers of 2000

Abstract

Physicists who search the literature on elementary particles know that the SLAC library's SPIRES-HEP database provides an essential tool. The database lists virtually every paper published or even preprinted in high energy physics over the past thirty years. The database connects preprint or eprint versions to articles published in journals or conference proceedings, providing access to all phases of the publication history. In addition, most papers have backward links to the papers they cite and forward links to the papers citing them. These citation linkages provide a very effective means of searching the literature on any topic of interest. In the past few years, SPIRES-HEP has been automatically harvesting reference citations from eprints, creating a web of links which indexes the literature in a quite thorough manner. As a byproduct of this citation linkage, SPIRES-HEP can easily search out the papers most highly cited by publications in high-energy physics. The list of papers with the most citations in a given year provides a snapshot of the hottest topics that have engaged the attention of theorists and experimenters. For the past several years, SPIRES-HEP has posted a scientific review of the year's top-cited papers. The whole collection of these reviews canmore » be found on the Web at: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/library/topcites/. We have recently posted the topcite lists for the year 2000. These materials include a list of the papers with more than 100 citations in the past year, and a list of the paper with more than 1000 citations over the history of the SPIRES-HEP database.« less
