TopCited lists most-cited papers by disciplines

On March 11, Scopus released TopCited, a free service which lists the most-cited recent articles in various disciplines, using the Scopus API. Users can view the top 20 articles from the past 3, 4, or 5 years in one of 26 subject areas, and view the authors' institutions on a Google Map. (Thanks to ResourceShelf.)

Update. Per Klaus Graf, all of the current top 20 papers (across all subjects, from the past 5 years) have OA versions online. Coincidence?
