Altmetrics, the world’s leading provider of online impact information, have now published their list of the 100 most popular scientific research articles of 2015. This follows on from our success in 2013 when two of our articles achieved the top 100 position (click here to see).  So – many congratulations to Youyou, Michal and David for yet another major success!

Number 22 out of 100

Youyou, W., Kosinski, M. & Stillwell, D. (2015)  Computer-based personality judgments are more accurate than those made by humansProceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences (PNAS). doi: 10.1073/pnas.1418680112

The paper also ranks 7th in terms of score out of 28,127 attributed to University of Cambridge authors by Altmetrics for the past three years. This is a remarkable achievement for Youyou, the first author, who has achieved this distinction while a 3rd year PhD student. She is an inspiration to the whole body of postgraduate students at Cambridge. Go for it, Youyou!
