VPHA article featured + most read in JVSTA

With pleasure I can share that the review article from VPHA, "Recommended reading list of early publications on atomic layer deposition—Outcome of the “Virtual Project on the History of ALD" (62 authors), JVSTA 35 (2017) 010801,, has currently a "featured" status in the website of Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology and it is currently no. 1 in the "most read" list. See below for a screen capture from taken on January 8, 2016.

The metrics of the article report that it has been viewed 469 times (see screen capture below). For comparison, the second most viewed article---the excellent atomic layer etching overview by Kanarik et al.---has received 375 views.

Regarding the viewing statistics, I have two questions in mind to JVSTA:

  • I cannot find an explanation in the JVSTA website of the time in which the views are recorded. Does the counting start from the original publication of the article or from the beginning of a month/year?
  • It would be interesting to view the Altmetrics summary of the article. Could an Altmetrics link be added to the articles in the website? As an example, the Altmetrics summary of the ALE-ALD essay can be viewed here.
