SLAS Celebrates the Top 10 Most-Cited SLAS Technology Articles

As part of the 10th anniversary of SLAS, the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board of SLAS Technology have compiled two top 10 lists acknowledging the most-cited articles published within the journal since its inception in 2018. The articles featured on this list were published between 2018 and 2019 and are listed in numerical order based on the number of citations.

As a bonus, take a look back at the history of the journal by viewing the top 10 overall most-cited lists, featuring articles from when SLAS Technology was known as the Journal of Laboratory Automation.

Each article is available for free and with unlimited access via SAGE Open Access.

Congratulations to all of the authors in each list. SLAS is extremely honored to work with the scientists and researchers who are featured in our scientific publications and look forward to another 10 years of showcasing significant life sciences and technology research within SLAS Technology.
