The Hottest Research of 2005-06. ‘Turning to its customary annual roundup of the hottest of recent research, Science Watch here presents the scientists who, as of late 2006, had published the greatest number of Hot Papers over the preceding two years.
For the second year in a row, immunologist Shizuo Akira occupies the top tier, this time by virtue of seven Hot Papers on Toll-like receptors, innate immunity, viral recognition, and other topics. Akira and colleagues also published a 2006 report that wound up among the year’s most cited.
Among the authors with six Hot Papers, Max Tegmark makes his second consecutive appearance in an annual roundup, thanks to his contributions to six reports in space science. One of these, on the Fourth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), scores the #1 spot in the table of 2006’s most-cited papers.’
