  • *Accession data from 2016 to 2019 were used as a proxy to indicate which of the 13 review titles have been most in demand to date. Demand can be taken to be a proxy of utility for consumers (this utility may also be related to the ‘currency’ of the review during its time period given that the lower the order in the table, in general, the older the review).
