Ex Libris Group released bX Hot Articles, part of the recently launched bX usage-based suite of services. Updated monthly, Hot Articles identifies the 10 articles that researchers have selected the most in each discipline in recent weeks, as well as the 10 most popular articles overall. The service is free for noncommercial use.
bX Hot Articles helps users discover information that others have found helpful. And because the service is based on usage data that is gathered without regard to publisher, platform, or institution, Hot Articles provides an objective picture of current global scholarly discourse.
In addition to online formats, the Hot Articles service is available as a mobile application for Android devices and will soon come to the iPhone. Hot Articles mobile apps can be downloaded for free from online stores and from the Ex Libris website.
