Medicine is considered as one of the most important necessity to all of us. It is derived from the Latin words ars medicina meaning “the art of healing”. All publications are classified into six categories on the basis of their long-term citation characteristics (Table 2).

This award-winning news publication, available online and in print, covers important and emerging research in all fields of science. SNS is a program of the Society for Science & the Public , a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education.
Because genuine breakthroughs are usually only recognized after a long time, we compared the results of our algorithms for the detection of scientific breakthroughs at early stage with those of the long-term ‘baseline’ detection algorithm developed by Redner 6 Redner’s algorithm essentially selects those publications that have received more than 500 citations, regardless of the citation window.
Trending scientific news on hot topics and the latest discoveries in the world of science and medicine. Schaffner, K., 1993, Discovery and Explanation in Biology and Medicine, Chicago: University of Chicago Press. Researchers detected vitamin E acetate, widely used as a dietary supplement, in every sample of lung fluid collected from 29 patients suffering from the severe illness, health officials announced November 8 in a news briefing and a report.
Philosophers of discovery were thus compelled to demonstrate that scientific discovery was in fact a legitimate part of philosophy of science. The algorithms select only a small number of the publications as a breakout, only a part of which will prove to be a real breakthrough.
