The Top PeerJ Articles of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, please join us as we review some of ‘top’ articles from 2015. A list like this is always going to be subjective, however, in order of ‘publication date’ here are our Staff Picks for the 10 most significant and interesting articles we published in 2015.

Most significant articles in 2015 (PeerJ or PeerJ Computer Science)

  • More ties than we thought [PeerJ Computer Science] 
    A fun study with implications for formal computational languages. It found that there are more than 260,000 ways to tie a neck-tie!

And, be sure to check out the various ‘top 10’ Collections per subject area, which we also compiled throughout the year.


Most cited PeerJ articles (all-time)

Of course, citations take time to accrue, and so our top 5 cited articles, of all-time, are currently:


In the Top 100 of all publications

We were also pleased to see two PeerJ articles (“Sizing ocean giants” and “A specimen-level phylogenetic analysis and taxonomic revision of Diplodocidae”) appearing in the “Top 100 science articles” of the year, as measured by the AltMetric service. To put that into perspective, remember that PeerJ started publishing less than three years ago, which makes the appearance of PeerJ amongst dozens of well-established journals on that list an amazing accomplishment.

So we had a great year at PeerJ and we published some amazing science. We look forward to 2016 – and we hope that you will send us your upcoming articles!

We encourage you to help spread the word about PeerJ by sharing a link to this blog post.
