Take a look at our ten most accessed papers for February.
The most accessed paper last month was a Journal of Systems Chemistry Perspective by Addy Pross, which aims to explain the emergence of life by extending Darwinian theory to inanimate matter. The Perspective was covered by the popular science magazine, Discover, leading to a surge in interest.
Also of interest was a software article published in Journal of Cheminformatics, which describes an open source chemical spreadsheet that runs within Microsoft Excel and can be used on sheets containing hundreds of thousands of compounds without compromising normal performance.
