(WASHINGTON, December 21, 2016; http://www.hematology.org/Newsroom/Press-Releases/2016/6978.aspx) — This year, there have been more than 1,000 manuscripts published in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology. To recognize these achievements, Blood Editor-in-Chief Bob Löwenberg, MD, PhD, and Deputy Editor Nancy Berliner, MD, have selected the top 10 most outstanding manuscripts of 2016.
“From harnessing the immune system to target untreatable diseases to honing cutting-edge genome editing techniques to correct genetic defects, the promise of cures for many diseases starts with a better understanding of the blood,” said Dr. Löwenberg. “Recognizing hematology as the home of some of science’s most groundbreaking advances, and Blood’s role as the top-cited journal of our field, we are proud to look back at the top papers of 2016.”
To identify the following top manuscripts of the year, the editors considered quality of the work and interest to the field of hematology, judged by how often the paper was accessed or cited.
