Editorial: First indication of impact

This figure shows a plot of cumulative views per month for the PLoS ONE paper "The Energy Computation Paradox and ab initio Protein Folding" by Faver et al.   Month 12 corresponds to March 2012, the month in which the paper was highlighted in Computational Chemistry Highlights.  During March the paper was viewed 345 times - a significant increase compared to the 86 views the previous month and second only to the first month where it was viewed 346 times.

 PLoS ONE is one of the few journals that publish such metrics so similar analyses are not possible for the other highlighted paper.  Never-the-less, the numbers are strong indication that Computational Chemistry Highlights is having an impact already.
