100 most watched Medical Papers in the world in 2020

 

100 most watched Medical Papers in the world in 2020.  The 100 most watched papers in the world in 2020 announced! Cell Res paper enters Top 10.

The 100 most watched papers in the world in 2020 (Altmetric Top 100) were announced a few days ago, and hot topics including the spread of the new coronavirus, treatment, planetary life, and personalized health monitoring are on the list.

Top100 papers in 2020 were published in 67 different journals. “Nature” published the most articles on the list (12), followed by “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” and “Science” with 6 and 5 articles respectively. In terms of institutions, the University of Cambridge has the largest number of papers (6), followed by Stanford University and Exeter University with 5 papers each.

At the same time, the 2020 Altmetric Top 100 list has made some fundamental changes: In order to better reflect the diversity of research and focus, no simple comprehensive attention score ranking is used, but 20 subject areas are included. Top 5 articles in each field.

Note: Altmetric has released the top 100 research list since 2013. Its scientific research influence index can track the record of a published research on the Internet, including the number of citations, reposts, collections, downloads, mentions, comments, and discussions.

 

Top Ten Medical Papers

Among the top ten in the 2020 Altmetric list, Chinese scientists have one seat.

It is worth noting that 2 of the top ten in the year are retracted. In this regard, Altmetric said that this ranking is the list of the most discussed papers in 2020, and it has nothing to do with the quality or impact of the research itself.

Number 1: The proximal origin of the COVID-19
Altmetric Index: 34775

100 most watched Medical Papers in the world in 2020

Paper Title: The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2

Journal: Nature Medicine

DOI: 10.1038/s41591-020-0820-9

According to the analysis of public genome sequence data, the new coronavirus that caused the COVID-19 pneumonia pandemic is the product of natural evolution. Despite previous recommendations from other research groups, the researchers found no evidence that the virus has been modified.

No. 2: Danish scientists test the impact of wearing masks on the spread of new coronavirus
Altmetric Index: 32931

Paper Title: Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers

Journal: Annals of Internal Medicine “Annuals of Internal Medicine”

DOI: 10.7326/m20-6817

A trial in Denmark aims to determine the impact of wearing masks on the spread of COVID-19 in areas where social distancing and other measures have been taken but most people do not wear masks. The results show that in this case, the protective effect is not as great as imagined.

No. 3: The United States is dying in a leadership vacuum
Altmetric Index: 26745

Paper Title: Dying in a Leadership Vacuum
Journal: New England Journal of Medicine
DOI: 10.1056/nejme2029812

The editors of the New England Journal of Medicine condemned the Trump administration’s failure to respond to the COVID-19 pneumonia pandemic, saying that US political leaders have shown “dangerous incompetence” and calling on them not to be re-elected.

No. 4: Comparison of the aerosol and surface stability of the new coronavirus and SARS virus
Altmetric Index: 26268

 

Paper Title: Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1
Journal: New England Journal of Medicine
DOI: 10.1056/nejmc2004973

Studies have shown that the COVID-19 can survive for a long time outside the human host. The virus can be detected on plastic and stainless steel for 3 days, on cardboard for 24 hours, on copper for 4 hours, and in aerosols for 3 hours.

No. 5: Treatment of new coronavirus with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine plus (or without) macrolides: analysis of multi-country registration (retracted)
Altmetric Index: 24430

Paper Title: RETRACTED: Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis
Journal: The Lancet “The Lancet”
DOI: 10.1016/s0140-6736(20)31180-6

The original paper believed that the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat patients with COVID-19 was not beneficial, but this finding could not be confirmed. The authors withdrew their research because they could not obtain the data and could not conduct a complete third-party peer review.

No. 6: Phosphine exists on Venus
Altmetric Index: 10681

Paper Title: Phosphine gas in the cloud decks of Venus
Journal: Nature Astronomy “Nature-Astronomy”
DOI: 10.1038/s41550-020-1174-4

Phosphine was found on Venus, which may be a sign of microbial life on this planet. Phosphine is composed of hydrogen and phosphorus. On earth, it can only be produced by industrial or anaerobic microorganisms.

No. 7: Smart toilets that personally monitor health through excrement
Altmetric Index: 9510

Paper title: A mountable toilet system for personalized health monitoring via the analysis of excreta
Journal: Nature Biomedical Engineering “Nature-Biomedical Engineering”
DOI: 10.1038/s41551-020-0534-9

A new type of smart toilet can help you check for signs of certain diseases, such as certain cancers, irritable bowel syndrome, and kidney failure. This toilet can detect disease markers in feces and urine, helping people monitor their health.

No. 8: The risk of airborne transmission of the COVID-19 virus is downplayed
Altmetric Index: 9278

Paper Title: It Is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Journal: Clinical Infectious Diseases “Clinical Infectious Diseases”
DOI: 10.1093/cid/ciaa939

In an open letter, 239 scientists from 32 countries said that the WHO has downplayed the risk of the new coronavirus spreading through the air. They called for greater awareness of risks and urged governments to implement control measures.

No. 9: Research encourages male tutors to guide female students (retracted)
Altmetric Index: 7690

Paper title: RETRACTED: The association between early career informal mentorship in academic collaborations and junior author performance
Journal: Nature Communications
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-020-19723-8

What impact does the mentor-apprentice relationship have on academic careers? The retracted paper claims that in the field of scientific research, women will develop better with the help of male tutors than with the help of female tutors. Men’s choice of mentors of different genders has little effect on development. The paper was criticized on social media, saying it undermined the value of female mentors.

10th place: Remdesivir and chloroquine can effectively inhibit the new coronavirus
Altmetric Index: 7292

Paper Title: Remdesivir and chloroquine effectively inhibit the recently emerged novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in vitro
Journal: Cell Research
DOI: 10.1038/s41422-020-0282-0

In February 2020, scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National Emergency Medicine Engineering Research Center of the Beijing Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology jointly published an analysis report analyzing the antiviral effects of 5 approved anti-coronavirus drugs. They concluded that remdesivir and chloroquine are very effective in vitro and recommend testing on human patients.
