Nomodave and I have had a number of successful publications recently in the medical literature with Pynomo-based nomograms. Unfortunately most of the are pay-for-access (you may have institutional access, depending on where you are) but this one in Anaesthesia is open access: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/anae.12679/full. The other two are here http://www.burnsjournal.com/article/S0305-4179%2814%2900166-1/abstract and here http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/bjs.9363/abstract.

From the nomography point of view they're not earth-shattering - in all cases they're essentially parallel axis nomograms - but in order to validate them we've used a method whereby we compare the performance of the nomogram to the results generated by a spreadsheet using a Bland Altman analysis. As you would expect, the nomograms all perform well. We knew they would, but these days an academic paper hasn't got a chance if it doesn't have some sort of stats analysis in it.

Thanks, Jason.

The first one is nifty.

The burns one doesn't seem to be free- free access - I can see the abstract but the full text and the pdf tabs bring up a 'log in or register' window.

Is it free access for registering? If so, do you know what information they seek?

The third one (BJS) gives me the usual Wiley song and dance:

"You can purchase online access to this Article for a 24-hour period (price varies by title)

If you already have a Wiley Online Library or Wiley InterScience user account: login above and proceed to purchase the article.
New Users: Please register, then proceed to [i]purchase the article[/i]."

I might be able to get them via institutional access. I'll try that another time.

Why thank you, sir.

(Adds 'nifty' to log of accolades received.)

Sadly, neither the Burns or BJS article is free, but as they're both major journals, most institutions will have access.
