The editorial and publishing staff scoured data for all manuscripts published in 2021 to determine the number of times each article was read on PRSJournal.com (combined Ovid usage and Full-Text and PDF usage on PRSJournal.com) for the 16 months following article publication. This 16-month data was combined to create an average score for each manuscript, placing them on equal footing, independent of publication month. The articles were sorted by score, and selected based on pre-existing categories.
