"The scandal of poor medical research" comes first in top papers poll

As part of our 20th online anniversary celebrations we ran a poll which asked readers to nominate which paper The BMJ should be most proud of publishing.

We confined the poll to Web of Science's top six most highly cited papers from the list of 20 articles.

The poll ran from July 7-15 2015 and attracted 576 votes across 55 countries.

Many thanks to all those who voted, and to readers who have also responded to this article with others papers which they feel have had a major impact.
