By 26.07.18

Welcome to the Altmetric High Five in association with the Science Council. On a monthly basis, the High Five posts examine a selection of the most popular research outputs Altmetric has seen attention for that month.

This month we’ll be focusing on the papers published in June to which we’ve captured the most videos on YouTube.

The original post can be found on the Altmetric blog here. Links to all papers included can be found in the Reference section at the end.
