Congratulations to Drs. Pete Miller, Larry Appel, and Eliseo Guallar, for their work on "Meta-analysis: High dosage vitamin E supplementation may increase all-cause mortality." Their article, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in January 2005, has landed on a list of red-hot research papers of 2005. This, according to the March/April issue of Science Watch--the bimonthly newsletter published by Thomson Scientific, a business unit of The Thomson Corporation.
The annual roundup of the hottest research papers celebrates researchers whose work influences modern scientific thought, said Christopher King, editor of Science Watch. It also identifies trends and hot fields of study. This year, for example, many of the hottest papers were published in medical publications.
The Science Watch rankings are part of the publication's annual rankings of the hottest researchers and papers of the year. For the rankings, Thomson Scientific evaluated the number of citations each paper received as indexed in its Web of Science database (as of late December 2005). All of the papers listed in the rankings were published in 2005. Click on image at right for article.
