In 1985, Oxford University diabetes researcher David Matthews published a study in the journal Diabetologia about a computerised mathematical model that could determine blood glucose and insulin levels. For more than two decades, the paper attracted little attention. But something changed in 2008, and in the 11 years since, the paper has been cited more than a thousand times each year, adding up to just under 20,000 citations. The full article was published at Medium.
