Hot Articles from bX is a new free usage-based service that shows you immediately, based on real usage data, what is hot in your subject.

Similar to the other bX Usage-Based Services, the bX Recommender, Most Popular Articles, and Journal Popularity Report services, Hot Articles is based on usage data from millions of researchers across journals, publishers and platforms. It helps the users to discover articles that other users found interesting - in general and for a specific topic.
