Read the Top Trending ACS Chemical Neuroscience Articles of 2018

The Altmetric Attention Score gives researchers the ability to view a more organized and comprehensive record of an article’s online shares, while concurrently tracking discussions of a research article’s findings and results. Altmetric Attention Scores reflect a variety of sources, including social media, traditional media (both mainstream and science-specific), online reference managers, forums, and Wikipedia. The information is aggregated to produce a score that is a measure of the quality and quantity of attention received by an article, i.e. how an article is “trending”.

ACS Chemical Neuroscience publishes high-quality research articles and reviews that showcase chemical, quantitative biological, biophysical, and bioengineering approaches to understanding the nervous system, as well as the development of new treatments for neurological disorders. In 2018, the journal published a special issue titled, “DARK Classics in Chemical Neuroscience,” focusing on the pharmacology, history, and chemistry of illicit drugs. The journal recently published virtual issues and collections on Alzheimers, clinical neuroscience, and more.

Many ACS Chemical Neuroscience articles trend well online due to interest in the topics covered. Read the Top 10 2018 ACS Chemical Neuroscience papers with the highest Altmetric scores.
