The most read article in December was Crawley et al‘s analysis of Chronic Fatigue System and school absence which was covered by several media outlets including the Telegraph, BBC News, The Guardian and the Nursing Times. Margel and Fleshner’s ecological analysis of oral contraceptive pill use and prostate cancer remained popular and McGlade et al’s study of variations in organ donation – originally published last October – was also in the top ten.
