Matthew Ferguson was featured in a Physics Today story about how online metrics are changing how research is viewed. Ferguson noted that he has been posting his papers to social media sites since he was a postdoc. “My hope is that they will generate more views, more citations, more downloads, more collaborations,” he said.

In addition, his article titled “Kinetic competition during the transcription cycle results in stochastic RNA processing” and published in eLife in 2014 (DOI: 10.3410/f.719010748.793501291) was recommended by Faculty of 1000 as being of special significance in its field. Faculty of 1000 is an organization of leading biomedical experts.
