Dr. Robin Thompson
In this Research Round-up, we feature a report from the recent Society for Mathematical Biology annual meeting, present news from the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, and draw attention to three highly cited papers that have been published in the Bulletin.
The Society for Mathematical Biology annual meeting took place in Sydney from July 8th to July 12th 2018.
We provide Society for Mathematical Biology annual meeting reports by Dr. Jeremy Mason, Research Assistant Professor of Oncology at the University of Southern California and Dr. Mary Myerscough, Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sydney.
Also, enjoy pictures from the meeting, courtesy of Colin Zheng, Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Sydney!
Bulletin of Mathematical Biology News
The Bulletin of Mathematical Biology has two exciting pieces of news. First, to support the fast dissemination of scientific research, the journal will now accept direct submission of bioRxiv preprints. For more information about this news, read a note here from Past-President of SMB, Santiago Schnell.
Second, Bulletin of Mathematical Biology articles – and indeed articles from across the Springer Nature portfolio – can be read for free via links on the SharedIt website. For more information about SharedIt, please click here.
Bulletin of Mathematical Biology – highly cited papers
In the last issue of the Newsletter, we highlighted some highly cited publications from past issues of the Bulletin. Here we highlight three more highly cited articles:
- Edwards AM, Brindley J. 1999 Zooplankton mortality and the dynamical behaviour of plankton population models. Bull Math Biol. 61(2): 303-339.
Citations: 195 (Google scholar, 30 Aug 2018)
- Araujo RP, McElwain DS. 2004 A history of the study of solid tumour growth: the contribution of mathematical modelling. Bull Math Biol. 66(5): 1039-1091.
Citations: 643 (Google scholar, 30 Aug 2018)
- Ma J, Earn DJ. 2006 Generality of the final size formula for an epidemic of a newly invading infectious disease. Bull Math Biol. 68(3): 679-702.
Citations: 164 (Google scholar, 30 Aug 2018)
If you have published a paper in the Bulletin that is now highly cited (for example, as defined by Essential Science Indicators of Institute for Scientific Information), why not let us know about it!
