Hsia et al.’s newly-published cross-sectional study on the variation in charges and prices paid for vaginal and caesarean births has also been popular. Other newly-published papers in the top ten most read include Li et al.‘s analysis on the effect of maternal age and place of birth on intrapartum outcomes, and Cobb et al.’s protocol for an RCT on smoking cessation intervention through Facebook.
