  1. Download statistics for the SIGS site were generated using Google Analytics. Daily reads were estimated based on the number of days from the time an issue appeared online to December 31, 2011 (range 8–881 days). Statistics for the PMC site were collected estimate based on data reported by the PMC Publisher Services site from the day an article was posted to December 31, 2011.
