Psychologist ranks high on downloads
Almost six years after publication, a paper written by Psychology professor Niko Troje still heads the list of “most downloaded papers” by the Journal of Vision: one of the most important and highest-impact journals in the field of vision and visual perception.
Originally published in September 2002, Dr. Troje's popular paper is entitled, “Decomposing biological motion: A framework for analysis and synthesis of human gait patterns.”
According to the Journal, “Like citation counts, download counts are an additional, useful source of information about articles. In our new, networked age, we are learning that links among pieces of information – and the number of links leading to one item – are valuable tools in searching and sorting among a daunting universe of possibilities.”
