New Scientist analyses stem cell publication data

Triggered by the open letter to senior editors of peer review journals publishing in the field of stem cell biology published on this site last year,  New Scientist this week published their analysis of "publication dynamics" in the field of induced pluripotenti stem (iPS) cell research.  They found that researchers in the US get their papers published faster, and in higher-profile journals, than rivals elsewhere.

Read their analysis, Paper trail: Inside the stem cell wars, and check out the accompanying diagrams.
