When You’re Hot, You’re Hot: Career Successes Come in Clusters

In a new paper, Wang investigates whether “hot-streak” periods like Einstein’s are more than just a lucky coincidence—in science, and in other fields as well. If the hot streak was a myth, then the hits in the real data should not be any closer together than in the randomized data. Wang hopes to look more closely in future research at what does cause a hot streak to begin and end. “Because what you produce during a hot streak is substantially better, your hot-streak period fundamentally determines your entire career’s impact,” Wang says. Wang happily dreams about the day that his own hot streak kicks in.
