Article of the Year: Discover impactful research published in 2022

In case you missed it, we're sharing highlights from Article of the Year.

Article of the Year 2022 showcased scientific excellence and impactful research from across 50 of our open access journals. We got to celebrate the work of some incredible authors and shout about their novel insights and findings. Here are just some of the highlights... 

Biological Science 

The winning Biological Science articles cover findings across the fields of cellular and molecular biology, drug development, and environmental and agricultural science. Topics include ketogenic interventions in Parkinson's, gut microbiota in anticancer therapy, mesenchymal stem cell applications, the taxonomy of bacteria in the genomic era, and much more. 

Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the winning articles and hear direct from four of the authors about where their fields are heading next in our recent blog post.  

Or for a quick overview of the findings from Dr. Florian Viehweger’s article, watch the video abstract for ‘Diagnostic and Prognostic Impact of Progesterone Receptor Immunohistochemistry: A Study Evaluating More Than 16,000 Tumors’. 

Mathematics & Engineering 

Winning articles in the Mathematics & Engineering category included studies on using recycled materials to improve the mechanical properties of compacted concrete, operational strategies for low-carbon supply chain under asymmetric information of fairness concerns operational strategies, and decoy-state quantum key distribution parameter optimization.
