Journal and figure statistics

The table below shows the numbers of journal articles that are cited in the header records of PDB files. It also shows the counts of articles from which figures have been taken (with permission from the publishers) and used to illustrate the corresponding entries in PDBsum (for examples, see the Gallery). Note that only those references which have been matched to a PubMed identifier are included.

The reference are classified as follows:

  • key reference - cited in the JRNL records in the corresponding PDB file,
  • secondary reference - listed in the REMARK records of the corresponding PDB file, or
  • added reference - either suggested by the author(s) or obtained from the journal in question (eg Acta Cryst D lists related PDB codes on its contents pages).
