Drugs (2017) 77:1929–1933 https://doi.org/10.1007/s40265-017-0845-7 Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2017 Dear Reader As we reach the ﬁnal issue of Drugs for 2017, I wish to reﬂect on another successful year’s achievements, and to thank all those who have contributed their time and effort to guarantee the high quality of our content. 2017 was a successful year for Drugs. Over 150 articles have been published, and as of the end of October, 28 of these have been downloaded from SpringerLink over 1000 times. Topics covered by these popular articles included the language of biosimilars, targeting of new signalling pathways in asthma, immune disorders and cancer, appropriate use of anti- epileptics, proton pump inhibitors and antimicrobials, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells, nanobiotechnology in pain management, and new developments in the drug treatment of diabetes, psoriasis and hepatitis B. Social media sharing of information is becoming more important and is another metric with which to measure the reach of articles. This year several articles published in Drugs scored over 20 on the Altmetric system. The quality of articles published in the journal is also reﬂected in its most recent (2016) impact factor of 5.000 (up from 4.883 in 2015).
