ScienceDirect, one of the major suppliers of electronic journals, now produces “top 25” lists. These quarterly lists give details of the most downloaded articles on the ScienceDirect website, so are useful for identifying the key developments in your subject area.
UWS has access to many of the ScienceDirect journals. You will need an Athens password to access these from off campus
Please contact your subject librarian if you would like more advice on keeping up to date with research trends.
