Nature peer-review editorial popular with readers

The most downloaded PDFs from the Nature‘s website for December 2006 show the Editorial “Peer Review and Fraud” at number 6, even though the article was published in the last issue of the year — traditionally disadvantageous for a high rank in the monthly download statistics. The Editorial was accompanied by a report on Nature’s Peer Review trial, which is also posted on Peer-to-Peer.

Other popular PDF downloads for December included a Correspondence contribution from Prof U. Kutschera about creationism and evolution; the news story “In search of lost time”; and, and number 1, the Letter “Decoding the ancient Greek astronomical calculator known as the Antikythera Mechanism.” The full list is available at Nature’s “top ten” page.
