The JACS Challenge

A while back, Matt Hartings, Stu Cantrill, See Arr Oh and I set out to determine whether or not a group of chemists could accurately predict "impactful papers" (as measured by citations) in a random issue of JACS. We called it "The JACS Challenge" for short.

If you'd like to play along (without cheating by first looking up citation counts!), here's an explanation and here's the link for the survey. 400 folks have already played along, and you can, too!

SPOILER ALERT: if you haven't done the survey, and plan to, don't click this link to Matt's excellent writeup of how a small group of folks have done at this prediction challenge.
