Our most highly cited papers from 2017


Citation of papers is an important statistic for any journal. Citations are the basis for the journal impact factors and give us the best indicator of the extent to which the work we publish is being picked up by other researchers in the field. For most papers it takes a while to attract citations. Some never do and sink into obscurity. Some start of slowly but attract attention as time goes by (a slow but steady burn). What the journals really like to see are the papers that explode onto the scene and attract attention immediately.
