There are lots of different ways to look at the reach of an article. You can look at citations, Altmetric Attention Scores, awards, and more. One way to consider the influence of an article is just by looking at how many people chose to read it. To that end, we’ve compiled lists of the five most-read chemistry articles that were published in each ACS Publications journal during August 2021, including papers, reviews, perspectives, and editorial pieces. These lists were not chosen by the journals’ editors and should not be taken as a “best of” list, but as another perspective on what newly published research attracted the most attention in a particular month.
