Top 100 papers of 2014: courtesy of Altmetric

Congratulations to Marc Tischkowitz and colleagues for getting into Altmetrics Top 100 papers of the year. Their NEJM paper on increase risk of breast cancer in loss-of-function PALB2 carriers was number 87 and one of two papers from the University of Cambridge.

The Altmetric Top 100 is heavily influenced by the media coverage of "newsworthy" publications and it is perhaps not surprising that the Number1 spot is taken by Facebook's rather controversial "emotional contagion" paper (covered by Retraction Watch).
No surprise that medical and biological sciences top the list with around 60% of papers in these categories. I was pleased to see that 80% of articles included an author from the UK.
